What is ShareLaTeX?
ShareLaTeX is an easy-to-use online LaTeX editor. It requires no installation, and allows real-time collaborative editing of a document, with version control. ShareLaTeX provides hundreds of templates for documents, and an extensive collection of LaTeX tutorials.
The UVa Library has purchased a group license for ShareLaTeX, available to anyone with a virginia.edu email address (you will be prompted to join the license when you register for an account). This license gives access to the features of a Pro account, including:
- Unlimited collaborators
- Document history and track changes
- Sync to Dropbox and github
- Mendeley integration
- Up to 1000 files per project, and an unlimited number of projects.
To sign up for ShareLaTeX, just visit the webpage (http://www.sharelatex.com/). If you already have an individual account, with a virginia.edu email address, you will be prompted to join the group license the next time you log in.
Please contact Ricky Patterson (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions about UVa’s license for ShareLaTeX.
