Dear goatandsheep,

I tried your script with SLACK, it outputs "The TeX-ification is complete!" on the console, but nothing is rendered.
I tried $x^2$, $$x^2$$, but nothing unfortunately...

Could you provide an example how to use this script?, that would be helpful.

I would be glad if you have some time,
best,
Stephan

I pondered over this line "Enables MathJax to process LaTeX on all websites. Based off SOUP (Stack Overflow Unofficial Patch) and http://www.math.ucla.edu/~robjohn/math/mathjax.html." from the comments, that helped me to get it working.

@schilichtanders It's had trouble rendering on streams, since it compiles the content at page load. If someone knows how to do that, that would be awesome.
