Hello! We're Ben and Andreas. We hated reading PDF academic papers on our phone, so we created Arxiv Vanity. It converts academic papers from the arXiv preprint server into responsive web pages.

The bit we're particularly excited about is Engrafo, the LaTeX to web page converter that powers Arxiv Vanity. LaTeX is considered one of the best computer typesetting systems, but it only produces print output. We want to make something of the same calibre for the web.

We've also got lots of other other ideas for tools we want to build. Discovering new and existing research is a particular area of interest. Oh, and all of our work is open source, obviously.

It costs about $100 a month to run Arxiv Vanity (Heroku, Cloudfront, S3, Hyper.sh). Any additional money will help support us while we drag academia into the 21st century!
