mod_tex: distributed LaTeX (et al.) rendering over Apache

mod_tex architecture
Fig. 1.  mod_tex's distributed architecture.


Clients connect to mod_tex's front-end, TraderJoe, who acts as a liaison to a corpus of unprivileged, chrooted dæmons on arbitrary machines.

TraderJoe sits behind Apache's basic- or, in the future, key-based-authentication.


WikiTeX, mod_tex's client for MediaWiki, allows in-article editing of LaTeX and other media-objects.


mod_tex is available over anonymous Subversion:

svn co modtex

alternatively, browse the mod_tex repository.
