Compiling LaTex on the Fly

I Stumbled upon the problem of creating images or PDFs from LaTex snippets.

I usually save my work in Evernote to make it easilly accessible, so I wanted a solution to work with Evernote.

One way to go is via Eat tags:

The other one is using LaTexIt (available on Mac as far as I know):

“LaTeXiT which is included in MacTeX can convert a text string to image (png, jpeg, pdf, maybe others), and a shortcut can be set in OS X in keyboard preferences ->shortcuts -> services, so that the key combination Cmd+Option+Shift+L is a global hotkey that take selected (LaTeX) text string, generates an image and inserts it in place of the text. The original LaTeX code I put in as the image name in Evernote (right click -> name attachement), so that if I need to modify the equation, I can do so without typing up the whole code again.”
