A brief guide to setup KaTeX

math markdown css html themes

Mathematical notation in a Hugo project can be enabled by using third party JavaScript libraries.

In this example we will be using KaTeX

  • To enable KaTex globally set the parameter math: true in a project’s configuration (config.yml)
  • To enable KaTex on a per page basis include the parameter math: true in content files

Note: Use the online reference of Supported TeX Functions


Inline math:

\(\varphi = \dfrac{1+\sqrt5}{2}= 1.6180339887…\)

Block math:

$$ \varphi = 1+\frac{1} {1+\frac{1} {1+\frac{1} {1+\cdots} } } $$
