We allow our developers to use Unicode in comments and text outputs. It is especially useful to typeset mathematical symbols and equations. Here is an example.
// The multivariable chain rule states: // df/dv_i = (∂f/∂x * dx/dv_i) + (∂f/∂y * dy/dv_i) // ∂f/∂x is y*x^(y-1) // ∂f/∂y is (x^y)*ln(x)
Here we collect tips and tricks that we have found while using Unicode. Please consider contributing if you find useful things to share:
- unicodeit.net : A website converts LaTeX expressions into corresponding Unicode symbols.
- latex-input : Latex input method for macOS and Microsoft Windows.
- Emacs’ TeX input method : Emacs’ input method which allows users to enter Unicode characters by typing their (La)TeX names.
- If you experience a problem rendering Unicode symbols in your system, please download and install the following fonts on your machine:
