Autocomplete for Tex commands

leave a comment »

As we have decided on using jQuery for the MathTran online Tex editor, I have been looking for some jQuery plugins to provide autocomplete functionality for Tex commands.

The jQuery Autocomplete Mod found at looks promising but it requires a few changes. Ideally the plugin should work for text in a textarea, suggesting commands for the last typed characters just underneath the cursor. The plugins I have found so far were designed for input fields of type text and used the whole value of the field to query the database of known words.

I will continue looking for an existing plugin with the required features, but might have to modify one of the existing ones to fit my needs.
