MarkInside is a math equation, diagram generator. It currently supports LaTeX Math, Mermaid, and any HTML.
## Single source of truth
Many other apps require you to code in a source file and use it to generate images. This can be quite bothersome for two reasons. One is that you can not ensure that the image you have matches the latest source code. Maybe someone changed the code but forgot to generate a new image. Two, you will have to manage both the source code and the image. If you are putting them inside other files, you may soon lose the connection between the two files.
There is no *.markinside file generated alongside when you save images from code. The images are just the single source of truth. You can simply open them in MarkInside to make changes.
* Some apps or services may compress your images and wipe away the embedded source codes. You can try to save it as SVG or PDF to bypass this issue.
## Live Preview
MarkInside offers you a side-by-side editor, you can see the result as you type or change preferences.
You can adjust windows size and canvas background color, to see how well the output image will suit your use case.
## Use Everywhere
The generated files are just images in PNG, SVG, and PDF. This means you can use them everywhere, without the need for the viewer to support rendering Mermaid, etc.
## Power-up with Blocks & Templates
MarkInside's block-based editor allows you to keep complicated content readable. With a reasonable arrangement of code blocks, you can also make reusable templates to power up MarkInside.

- Fix that the content may be incorrect if a block is included multiple times.
Ratings and Reviews
The idea of packing LaTex/Mermaid markup inside the rendered image file is genius. I mostly work with Mermaid diagrams, and can confirm that the approach works fine with PNG output. There were some rendering glitches with SVG, which was a pity.
The app is still fairly young, and it shows in some respects. It's nice that you can output at @2x or @3x resolution, but annoying that you have to re-select the correct setting each time.
Also, as it stands now, there's no way to define your own custom/preferred Mermaid color theme.
I really hope the developer continues to refine this, and keeps current with Mermaid updates. In the future, you could imagine PlantUML and nomnoml "engines" being added.
The app's off to a good start and has lots of potential.
