We’re pleased to announce the official release of one of our most requested and anticipated features (it’s only been on the roadmap for about 2 years…) GitHub Sync! You can now link your ShareLaTeX projects to GitHub repositories, and push and pull changes. If you’re a git user this will open up some exciting new offline and collaborative workflows.
To get started you need to link your account to github allowing ShareLaTeX to read your repositories. You will be prompted to start the linking when you either clone from a github repo or want to push to a new github repo. It is also possible to link your account via the User Settings page.
You can easily import a project from github into a new ShareLaTeX repo via the new project button.
From inside the ShareLaTeX editor you can easily push and pull changes from Github meaning you are always in sync.
I am really pleased to announce that ShareLaTeX.com has been translated into Spanish and Portuguese. Making LaTeX available to everyone is one of our core goals so removing the barrier of needing to know english was on our road map for a long time.
We are not stopping at just Spanish and Portuguese, if you would like to see ShareLaTeX in your local langauge and can help with the translation process please get in touch here!
We’ve just launched a new, redesigned and more usable version of ShareLaTeX! The new version is more consistent, more intuitive, and the features you need are easier to find. If you haven’t already, then go give it a try!
As well as giving the ShareLaTeX brand a bit of a reboot, we wanted to focus on the usability of our web app. In this redesign we’ve tried to:
I hope that these things will make using ShareLaTeX an even more pleasant experience than it was before.
As always, we’d love to hear your feedback, and have put together a form to collect your thoughts on the redesign. Please help us out and fill it in.
Of course, all of these changes are also part of the open-source edition of ShareLaTeX so you can enjoy them locally too!
