texvc should support commutative diagrams via XY-packet
Open, NormalPublic

Description

Hello,

I have a feature-request and I hope this is the right place for it. At http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hilfe_Diskussion:TeX#Kommutative-Diagramme_.2F_XY-Packet I have started a discussion and some people agreed with the suggestion.

I suggested, that in the preamble of LaTex of Wikipedia the packet XY should be loaded. Informations about this Latex-packet and how to load it could be found at http://www.guntherkrauss.de/computer/tex/diagramme.html . With this packet it is possible to write commutative diagrams directly in Wikipedia. So the author doesn't have to create a picture by its own. This would save some time for the editor and it is much easier to adjust the diagram by another people.

I hope you will understand my poor English and I hope you will include this feature.

Best regards
Christian

Does it have at least English documentation?

Don't change the categorisation of this bug, please. Before messing with extension setup on Wikimedia, code that supports it should be written first.

Oh, I'm sorry, at the page http://www.tug.org/applications/Xy-pic/ and in this http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/generic/diagrams/xypic/xy/doc/xyguide.pdf pdf you can find information in English.

There is a XyJax extension for MathJax (but not integrated in the official distribution) and the next version of LaTeXML will probably have some support for graphic packages. So that might be future options to consider.

Is AMScd an option?
Note, that this is still blocked by T74240. So please vote for this bug, to show that there is an actual community interest to move forward and not stick with the status quo.

One could implement that with a new <cd> tag similar to the new <ce> tag proposed in T98306.
