# 1 What is WebLTX?

WebLTX is a slim and lightweight framework for publishing scientific content on the internet. It was modelled on LaTeX, which is the standard for print media for decades. Contrary to LaTeX, WebLTX produces no PDF but cross-linked websites like this one. Similar to LaTeX is that WebLTX can automatically produce numbers for equations, figures and headlines. Furthermore, it formats the output and creates links when needed. Formulas can be inserted in LaTeX syntax because of MathJax. Since version 1.0, WebLTX supports BibTeX files and permalinks.

The content is written in HTML instead of LaTeX markup language. Additionally, WebLTX needs no separate compiling step, that means that every change in the HTML code is immediately visible after a browser refresh. WebLTX needs only PHP but no databases. For that reason, it can be used on almost every web server. Here is an example for a website which was created with WebLTX.

WebLTX was developed, to support a fast, free and professional distribution of new scientific ideas. It is freely available under terms of the GNU General Public License. WebLTX can be downloaded here.
