Description Sebastien CELLES 2007-06-27 15:05:57 UTC
Hello,

most of my courses are made using LaTeX and PSTricks (I teach physics).
I'd like to help the french Wikiversity by giving some of them.
Unfortunately MediaWiki doesn't seems to support PSTricks.
I really think that it will be very usefull to add such a feature
because if now I send a .png or a .jpeg file (for a schematic) it will be very
difficult for others users to modify this schematic.
So the solution is to provide an interface for vector graphics.
Moreover PSTricks is very usefull as it can be very easily modified by
hand (contrary to SVG... even if I'm not opposed to SVG).
Moreover many extension such as pst-circ http://pstcirc.free.fr
are usefull
see for example
 http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/graphics/pstricks/
 pst-plot % plot functions using RPN
 pst-infixplot % plot functions without RPN
 pst-math % add some mathematical functions
 pst-coil % coil, zig-zag
 pst-eucl % euclidian geometry, rotation, ...
  http://dominique.rodriguez.9online.fr/pst-eucl/
  http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/graphics/pstricks/contrib/pst-eucl/
 pst-node
  % http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/pst-node.html
 pstricks-add
  % http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/graphics/pstricks/contrib/pstricks-add/
 pstcol and pst-osci % for drawing oscilloscope
  % http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/graphics/pstricks/contrib/pst-osci/

Providing PSTricks will help Wikipedia and Wikiversity to have schematics
that can be modified.

Regards

For some LaTeX / PStricks extension for physic chemistry
see for example :

 http://melusine.eu.org/syracuse/pstricks/pc/

You can also think about supporting other kind of textual vector graphic format such as :
 - METAPOST http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MetaPost
 - PGF and TikZ http://sourceforge.net/projects/pgf
 - SVG
 - Asymptotes
   http://www.dse.nl/~dario/projects/asylatex
   http://asymptote.sourceforge.net

see for example
http://www.tug.org/pracjourn/2007-1/editor
http://www.mathematex.net/phpBB2/comparaisons-graphiques-asymptotes-pstricks-tikz-et-autres-vt3806.html
