Welcome to the SpanDeX book. This book serves as a tutorial for SpanDeX.

What is SpanDeX?

SpanDeX is a modern alternative to LaTeX, carefully designed to be:

  • ultra performant, allowing lightning fast compilation and hot reloading with optimized algorithms;
  • simple, avoiding the need for users to learn a complex language before being able to do basic things;
  • easy to debug, not reproducing the tons of useless stuff LaTeX vomits every time something goes wrong and making it a breeze to find and fix simple mistakes.


This project is still very recent, and very (very) few functionnalities are supported. This is not production ready in any way, it's simply here if you want to have fun and play around.
