We should add LaTeX capabilities to the Wiki text editor. This will bump-up publication collaboration productivity.

The SVN capabilities of the wiki make it ideal hub for science publication collaborations. However, the current Wiki formatting environment (https://nanohub.org/tools/crystal_viewer/wiki/WikiFormatting) does not understands LaTeX (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LaTeX).

There are some LaTeX implementations for Trac online:

  1. http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/LatexMacro
  2. http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/TracBibPlugin
  3. http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/TracMathPlugin

Since LaTeX is the main scientific formatting tool for scientific publications and the NanoHUB nature is multidisciplinary (many groups working on each project), adding LaTeX functionality within Wikis must be a priority. This will bump-up our productivity as we would simultaneously work in the most up to date version of a publication draft in its final deliverable form (e.g. no need to write it up in the wiki, then in Word and then port it to LaTeX for the publisher).
