Section 4.12 Building Output in CoCalc

CoCalc has all the tools you need to author with MathBook XML. You will need an upgrade from a subscription to allow Internet connectivity, but at a minimum a colleague with a paid plan can spare you one, they are plentiful and meant to be shared.

  • Text editor: reasonably good, partially XML syntax-aware.

  • git: installed (so clone PreTeXt).

  • : installed with many additional packages.

  • Python: installed, necessary for mbx script.

  • PDF viewer: handed off to your browser.

  • HTML viewer: convert to the “raw” URL and you can preview.

  • HTML server: nope. Zip up output and host elsewhere.
