# Description

The two npm packages seemed to share the same api, but the package "mathoid-mathjax-node"

• Is a secret repo. I cannot find a gerrit or github project page for it.
• Depends on the deb package librsvg2-dev, which takes around 90 mb of space on Ubuntu
• Can render png.
• Caused confusion in that its npm page points to the github repo of MathJax-node.

Both of these use the same repo, the mathoid-mathjax-node package was created to allow us to move to Node 4. @Physikerwelt do you know if it's safe to go back to requiring mathjax-node ?

I would recommend to keep the repo for now. I think it's a good achievement that we can use a tested version of MathJax and update from time to time. Moreover as stated in the ticket we need the PNG generation.
