SpartanTeX provides a web service that compiles LaTeX source code written in Google Docs and returns the resulting PDF document. Together with the Google Docs editor, SpartanTeX is a collaboration friendly LaTeX authoring environment. It offers collaborative editing and revision control through Google Docs and easy compilation using LaTeX on the SpartanTeX site, without a local installation of LaTeX.
Note that most of the Google Docs functionality, such as editing, sharing, and revision control, is only available through Google Docs and not through SpartanTeX.
SpartanTeX supports BibTeX bibliographies, \input and \include commands, documentclasses uploaded by the user, and the inclusion of images with \includegraphics.
Brian Sinclair and Sebastian Pauli from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, UNC Greensboro designed and wrote SpartanTeX.
