Using the right Emacs Version I failed to preview LaTeX with emacs-plus. If you have installed d12frosted/emacs-plus, uninstall it and use emacs-mac. brew tap railwaycat/emacsmacport brew install emacs-mac If you like the fancy spacemacs icon, install it with cask: brew cask install emacs-mac-spacemacs-icon Install Tex Download and install BasicTeX.pkg here. Add /Library/TeX/texbin to PATH. Install dvisvgm by sudo tlmgr update --self && sudo tlmgr install dvisvgm collection-fontsrecommended Emacs settings Add TeX related bin to path: (setenv "PATH" (concat (getenv "PATH") ":/Library/TeX/texbin")) Tell Org Mode to create svg images: (setq org-latex-create-formula-image-program 'dvisvgm) Now you can see the rendered LaTeX equation by calling org-preview-latex-fragment or using shortcut ,Tx.
Recently, I enjoy using Spacemacs, so I decided to switch to org file from Markdown for writing blog. After several attempts, I managed to let Travis convert org file to HTML. Here are the steps. Install Org Mode plugin First you need to install Org Mode plugin on your computer following the official guide: Nikola orgmode plugin. Edit conf.el Org Mode will convert to HTML to display on Nikola. Org Mode plugin will call Emacs to do this job.
