Hi there,

The reanimate library can import stuff from diagrams bit it is a completely separate project, so I don't think we can help you there.  I suggest contacting the maintainer, David Himmelstrup (lem...@gmail.com).

When you say "transforming latex into a diagram", can you be more specific?  You can definitely have a latex document with embedded diagrams code, and you can have latex typeset text embedded in the diagrams.  But I'm not sure if you mean something different.

Also, does diagrams library offer some functionality for transforming latex into diagram?

Yes, I already contacted the maintainer. Apologies for posting here.

> you can have latex typeset text embedded in the diagrams
Can you give some example, please? How to make circle with $\pi$ inside it (typeset by latex) and export it to svg, maybe.

Thank you.

No worries!

To make a circle with $\pi$ inside it typeset by latex you can do something like

import Diagrams.Prelude
import Diagrams.Backend.PGF.CmdLine

main = mainWith $(text "$\\pi\$" <> circle 1 :: Diagram B)

and render it with the diagrams-pgf backend.  The resulting PGF code can then be run through latex.  So I don't know how to export to SVG.  Maybe someone else can chime in with other ideas?

Thank you.
