TeXdoc online

texdoc-online is the project behind texdoc.org, the most common online TeX documentation search.

Language: Kotlin Minimum JRE: 8.0 Current version


TeXdoc online is an online TeX and LaTeX documentation lookup system developed and maintained by the Island of TeX. The project provides a RESTful API and a self-updating Docker container.

The package documentation lookup relies on the Island's TeXdoc API. For topic and package listings, as well as recommendations, the system relies on the CTAN JSON API, properly cached and updated twice a day to save external queries.

Details on the provided RESTful API and deployment may be found on our Wiki:

To cut a long story short: You can run the application from the CI-built JAR files, the Docker container provided in our registry and for real deployment using Docker compose built on the docker-compose.yml file in the repo.
