Getting Started

MathQuill has a simple interface. This brief example creates a MathQuill element and renders, then reads a given input:

var htmlElement = document.getElementById('some_id');
var config = {
  handlers: { edit: function(){ ... } },
  restrictMismatchedBrackets: true
var mathField = MQ.MathField(htmlElement, config);

mathField.latex('2^{\\frac{3}{2}}'); // Renders the given LaTeX in the MathQuill field
mathField.latex(); // => '2^{\\frac{3}{2}}'

Check out our Getting Started Guide for setup instructions and basic MathQuill usage.
