It’s becoming kinda frustrating to work completely alone on this project (math typesetting in SILE).

On the other hand, I understand that practically everyone will judge the task too big, for too little benefit

Advent of Code Q01 answer 

As usual, I will cowardly stop doing the Advent of Code as soon as I find myself unable to answer with a 5-line Haskell code

Les rendus des étudiants contiennent parfois des surprises (et du pessimisme).

Finally, proper integrals (SILE vs LuaLaTeX output). I had to write in C to get this 😭

Something's wrong with the `\Longrightarrow` symbol in TeX

hacking: finally got around to writing a little grammar for writing math in a TeX-like style (left) rather than in MathML directly (right).
Which one do you prefer? 😜

Reading a journal paper, my supervisor is cited in it. It's normal but it feels weird ^^

Wondering why many people denote \( σ_{\dashv} \) the last element of the sequence σ. Is it because \( \dashv \) looks a bit like −1? 😄

I can't see a difference now. SILE math prototype (left) vs LuaLaTeX (right).

Now, save for the size of big operators in display style, I think they are almost identical.

This is a challenge for typographers (which I am not). Can you tell apart our rendering (amateurish) from LuaLaTeX's?
