ShareLaTeX was an online LaTeX editor that allows real-time collaboration and online compiling of projects to PDF format.[3]

In comparison to other LaTeX editors, ShareLaTeX (now Overleaf), is a server-based application, which is accessed through a web browser. A publicly maintained instance of ShareLaTeX is available at https://www.sharelatex.com, and the software to run a personal instance of ShareLaTeX is available under an open-source license.[4]

On July 20, 2017, ShareLaTeX was acquired by Overleaf.[5] Overleaf plans to continue ShareLaTeX under the brand Overleaf v2 which was in beta testing up until the 4th of September 2018.[6] The domain name "sharelatex.com" now redirects to a connection page for Overleaf v2.[7]

Features[edit]

The site follows the freemium pricing model, and the free hosted accounts and open-source version of ShareLaTeX include the following features:

  • private and public projects
  • real-time collaboration between private collaborators (maximum 2 collaborators per project)[8]
  • spell-check
  • one-click compilation to PDF

The paid plans include additional features:

Technical architecture[edit]

ShareLaTeX uses Node.js written in CoffeeScript with data stored in MongoDB and Redis.[9]

ShareLaTeX is able to integrate R. It has integrated the Knitr package. [10]
