Online compiling of TikZ gallery examples
On each example page and also in the gallery views, you can see [TeX] and [PDF] buttons for downloading. Now there are new links: [Open in writeLaTeX]. Just a single click and you will land in the online editor which shows the code on the left side, and the output preview on the right side, automatically compilated in realtime.
Currently the output preview is shown as a bitmap image. It can be scaled which affects the sharpness. However, you can export the image in the writeLaTeX interface to PDF format for the best resolution. Or right-click the image and choose “Show image” in the context menu.
Note, some examples require two compiler runs, for example when overlays are used, so you may need to refresh the preview for final positioning of TikZ elements.
Now can directly edit and modify examples, starting with a single click, even without having a local TeX installation. So you can enjoy programming with TikZ examples even on your iPad, your Android tablet or your smart phone.
