What is blue.publications.li?

blue.publications.li helps you and your coauthors to write latex papers:

  • you write your paper in your browser: at home, at work, on your netbook, without installing a complete latex environment on your machine.
  • you edit the same latex source collaboratively and in real time: when you modify the latex source in your browser, your co-authors receive the changes in their browser within 2 seconds (hence you never send latex sources by email or handle conflicting merges).
  • sharing your paper means simply copy/pasting a URL!

Hi Martin,

Fantastic idea!

A few comments so far:
- see who is connected, allow simple chat
- it would be great to see who is editing what (just like google docs)
- revision control
- show compilation errors
- make commonly used document styles available (e.g. Springer LNCS style)

probably more to come,
Thanks for this tool.

Best,

Jan

Hi Jan,

Many thanks for the feedback!

> show compilation errors
already done, unless there is a bug

> make commonly used document styles available (e.g. Springer LNCS style)
I’ll add it asap

The rest of your comments are now on my TODO list

Best, –Martin

I can see the compilation errors now.
A quick hack to use another document class is to upload the class file as an image.

– the compilation could be made a bit faster.

– the cursor of other people should be visible so that they do not rewrite each other

It would be great if it was possible to use “git” and “blue” together: i.e. upload all the stuff the paper needs (styles, images, etc) to git and then edit the .tex files online in “blue”.

I agree with you, we’ll work on this soon.
