LaTeX Math in Octopress

I just can’t believe displaying LaTeX math formula in Octopress could be this easy.

  1. Add gem 'kramdown' to “GemFile”, then run bundle install.
  2. Edit “_config.yml”, replace markdown: rdiscount to markdown: kramdown, kramdown is a fast, pure-Ruby Markdown-superset converter.
  3. Open “source/_includes/custom/head.html”, and add below scripts to use MathJax, a decent js display engine for mathematics.
