# sagetex: Embed code, results of computations, and plots from Sage into LaTeX documents¶

## Description¶

The SageTeX package allows you to embed code, results of computations, and plots from Sage into LaTeX documents.

## SPKG Maintainers¶

Dan Drake (dr.dan.drake at gmail) and SageMath developers (sage-devel@googlegroups.com)

## Dependencies¶

To install, nothing more than a standard Sage install. The
`spkg-check`

script will exit without actually testing anything if it
cannot find “latex” in your path.

## Notes¶

To use SageTeX, both Sage and LaTeX need to know about it. SageTeX comes standard with Sage, so you only need to make sure LaTeX can find what it needs. Full details are in the Sage installation guide at http://doc.sagemath.org/html/en/installation/ and http://doc.sagemath.org/html/en/tutorial/sagetex.html .

The directory `$SAGE_ROOT/local/share/doc/sagetex`

contains
documentation and an example file. See
`$SAGE_ROOT/local/share/texmf/tex/latex/sagetex`

for the source code
and some possibly useful scripts. If you have problems or suggestions
see the sage-support
group.

If you want to help develop SageTeX, please clone the github repository (see the “Upstream Contact” above) and send me patches based on that.

## Type¶

standard

## Equivalent System Packages¶

conda:

```
$ conda install sagetex
```

See https://repology.org/project/sagetex/versions

However, these system packages will not be used for building Sage because using Python site-packages is not supported by the Sage distribution; see https://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/29023
