Hello, World!

Published: January 19, 2015

Hello World! This is my first blog post! I can use this as a test on how to use the math and the code view feature. The math environment takes the \(\LaTeX{}\) syntax, which always makes me happy. This is inline math: \(2x + 15 = 9\).

This is the equation environment:

\begin{equation} \label{eq:test_eq} X(\omega) = \int_{-\infty}^{+\infty} x(t) e^{-j\omega t}\ \mathrm{dt} \end{equation}

Seems to be working!

The inline equation was generated from the following code snippet:

This is inline math: $2x + 15 = 9$

The numbered equation was generated from this code snippet:

X(\omega) = \int_{-\inft}^{+\infty} x(t) e^{-j\omega t}\ \mathrm{dt}

Note that I write my blog posts in markdown. I find it quite convenient to be able to use \(\LaTeX{}\) in markdown without any problems. This is made possible by the render_math pelican plugin. Here's a code view test using python syntax highlighting:

def main():

Of note is here, that there must be at least one blank line before the code statement (in my raw text). This took me a while to figure out. I guess thats a perk of being a markdown newbie.

At the bottom here, I will enter some org-mode tests: Here is a link to another article. The link was created in the original Org file linking to the Org file of the other article. It works like a charm.
