I'm looking for an alternative for http://docs.latexlab.org/ which is stable. Is there any?

    @MartylX: please define 'stable' in this context. – Joseph Wright Feb 8 '11 at 17:37

There are several Online LaTeX-Editors in my bookmark list:

  • MonkeyTeX, seems very stable and I've also used it before
  • ScribTeX
  • Verbosus, don't actually know more about it.
  • a bit special, since aimed at iDevices, but also online: TeX Touch (German site only)

Why you'd want to do that is another question. I'd suggest - if you really want to work on your documents in the cloud - that you look at a text-syncing app like simplenote, work on your files on the go and compile them on your machine at home.


If hosting your own Latex service is an option, you can run Google's CLSI code on a server, which is part of the technology behind docs.latexlab.org. See the InstallandConfig page on the project wiki for instructions on how to do this.

I've been meaning to try this out for a while; if anyone has any experience they'd care to share, I'd be interested.
