# LaTex Code in DeltaChat

Sorry, I don’t speak English.

I think it would be interesting to add LaTex’s equation notation.

For example: If I dug $\ frac {1} {2}$ should appear in the message a fraction of ½.

Most of all in academia this would be of great use.

This could be implemented/added in the message text parsing (where also markdown will be), but I’m not sure about the details especially the rendering in the frontend.
For the electron desktop client we could use https://www.mathjax.org/ or https://katex.org/ but I’m not sure about the others.
Anyways I can say for certain that it won’t come before we have markdown on all platforms.
