Using Jemdoc with Python 3 and New Mac OS

I tried to use jemdoc after updating my Mac OS and it does not work anymore. I tried to reinstall it, however, the installation instructions provided on jemdoc’s website do not work due to the new file management system on mac. In addition, the original jemdoc only works with Python 2.7. If you are using Python 3, it won’t work with jemdoc. Following is a simple fix.

  1. Download Jemdoc Mathjax
  2. Unzip the file.
  3. In Terminal, (use cd to change the current directory to the unzip folder)
sudo cp jemdoc /usr/local/bin/jemdoc
chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/jemdoc

Now, you can use jemdoc as you did before!
