eLyXer: tex to HTML

Categories Miscellany

I’ve been posting a lot of LyX stuff recently, and here’s another:


eLyXer is a python app that converts a LyX file to a nicely formatted HTML page. The files I tested worked a treat, so very excited.

To install this on a Mac, first get Macports if you don’t already have it. Then, from the terminal, run:

sudo port install ImageMagick
sudo easy_install elyxer

If you’re lucky that’ll work. If you run into a problem with ImageMagick, you probably need to install Java Development Package for MacOS X (don’t ask, some weird dependency of a dependency). It’s worth the effort.
