Streamline TeX Processing: Powerful Python API Converter

TeX and LaTeX Conversion API Solution for Python from Aspose.TeX. Robust and reliable tool that empowers your applications to effortlessly convert TeX and LaTeX files into various, including PDF, XPS, PNG, JPEG, TIFF, SVG, and BMP

Aspose.TeX is an API that works with the Object TeX system. For more information on TeX, you can refer to the Introduction to TeXs documentation. By integrating the Python API version, developers can seamlessly convert TeX and LaTeX files to formats such as PDF, XPS, PNG, JPG, BMP, and TIFF. Below is the code example that programmers can improve and integrate into their LaTeX solutions.

The Python API solution provided here allows for programmatically converting TeX and LaTeX files. However, you may also find it beneficial to explore the cross-platform Converters that have been developed using this native API. These converters offer additional functionalities such as creating and editing TeX files, working with tables and graphics, and merging multiple TeX files into a single PDF file. You can also discover applications that provide similar features and capabilities.

Convert LaTeX to Images, XPS, PDF, SVG in Python.

The API supports BMP, JPEG, PDF, SVG, TIFF, XPS, and PNG as output formats. To convert TeX files to Images, PDF, XPS, or SVG, you can follow these steps:

  1. Instantiate the TeXOptions class.
  2. Specify the working directories as spaces on your local file system for the output/input using the output_working_directory / input_working_directory options.
  3. Initialize save options using the BmpSaveOptions , PngSaveOptions , TiffSaveOptions , JpegSaveOptions , PdfSaveOptions , SvgSaveOptions , or XpsSaveOptions class. The default option is the latter class.
  4. Instantiate the TeXJob class, providing the appropriate output device as an argument ( ImageDevice , PdfDevice , SvgDevice , or XpsDevice ) and run the conversion by calling the run() method.
