1. Introduction
AsciidocLaTeX is an extension of the Asciidoc markup language which provides LaTeXlike features for for publishing mathematical content on the web. You can write
$ a^2 + b^2 = c^2 $
and
\[ e^{2\pi\sqrt{1}} = 1, \]
just as you would with LaTeX. This source code is rendered as \( a^2 + b^2 = c^2 \) and \[ e^{2\pi\sqrt{1}} = 1, \] AsciidoctorLaTeX provides analogues of LaTeX environments, and so gives functionality beyond what MathJax by itself offers. Thus, you obtain the rendered text
from the code
[env.theorem]  The square root of 2 is irrational. 
The environment blocks for propositions, lemmas, and definitions
work in exactly the same way, whereas [env.equation]
, and
use [env.equationalign]
behave as they would in LaTeX with
one exception. If an equation or equationalign environment
is not labeled for crossreferencing, then the equation number
is not generated or displayed.
To process AsciidocLaTeX into HTML or into other formats, e.g., LaTeX, get a free account on Noteshare.io, or install
See the installation instructions on GitHub. or in section 3 of this document. Asciidoctorlatex is developed by James Carlson, Jakub Jirutka, and Dan Allen.
1.1. Project status
The opensource AsciidoctorLaTeX project has three components:
 HTML Backend

Render AsciidocLaTeX files into HTML
 LaTeX backend

Convert AsciidocLaTeX files to LaTeX
 LaTeXtoAsciidoc

Convert LaTeX files to AsciidocLaTeX
These three components are in varying states of development. The HTML backend has not been released, but is in quite good shape. It has been used to power Noteshare.io for over a year. The LaTeX backend is suitable for experimentation but is currently limited in its coverage of Asciidoctor language features, It is nonetheless sufficient to convert most of the documents on Noteshare.io. See this example. The third component is a completely experimental research project and is not yet integrated into the asciidoctorlatex code.
The bulk of this draft document is concerned with (1).
