MathEclipse: Ajaxian Symbolic Calculator

Category: Showcase

Have you ever needed to do matrix multiplication in JavaScript ({{1,2},{3,4}}.{{1,2},{3,-4}}), or K-th Partitions (KPartitions[{a,b,c,d,e},3])?

Now, we have an ajaxian symbolic calculator from Axel Kramer called MathEclipse.

It’s an open source project at, and features:

  • JavaScript auto-complete in the text-area (type ‘sin’ for example)
  • Tomcat/Java servlet engine at the backend
  • the math engine should also be used as an eclipse plugin in a future version (hence the name).

There are two problems with the select elements:
* Clicking the select text doesn’t expand the item, you must click the arrow button.
* After expanding the select list, clicking elsewhere on the page doesn’t collapse the list.

This is contrary to standard behavior.
