Update (Jan 16, 2024): In exciting news, Writefull is now fully integrated with Overleaf, giving you the power of AI-based language feedback directly in the editor on any browser. It is being made available to an increasing number of Overleaf users in stages. If you do not currently see the option to turn on the Writefull for Overleaf integration in your Account Settings, it should be available for your Overleaf account in the near future. If you are not seeing this and would like early access, please consider joining our beta program.
To turn on Writefull, just go to the Overleaf menu in your editor, and flip the switch. From there, you’ll be prompted to create a Writefull account, so you can get AI-powered language suggestions specifically tailored to scientific and technical writing.
For now, if you already use the Writefull for Overleaf extension, you can continue to use it as normal and you’ll have access to the same feature set as the integrated version.
The blog post below has been updated to reflect these changes.

This is a guest blog post by Joseph Wright, creator of the learnlatex.org site. Joseph is also author of the Some TeX Developments blog, member of the LaTeX Project and active contributor on TeX StackExchange.
LaTeX is a great system for producing technical documents, but as it is not a word processor, there is an entry barrier. In many ways, learning LaTeX is like learning a 'real' programming language: we have input ('code') and run ('compile') to get output. It's not surprising, therefore, that we might look at how people learn those 'real' programming languages and want to provide similar tools. A quick search will show that while books remain important resources, interactive web-based training is the first contact many users have with a whole range of programming tools. The learnlatex.org project was born out of the desire to provide the same easy-to-access approach for LaTeX beginners.
