I had this idea, and … I realize this may be better accomplished through some part of the app I’m not yet familiar with, and that this might be very specific to how I think about approaching complexity, but still:
How about having an interactive console for Tinderbox?
The idea is similar to the “developer” console you can get in a browser: basically a way of querying the current state, looking at certain paths through a node, or asking how many nodes are at a certain level, or which nodes match a certain kind of query.
(it’s different from external automation, very much within the app)
It’s not completely far-fetched, OmniOutliner has a similar automation console that’s accessible within the app.
Let me know if any of this makes sense (am I just describing Agents, except … badly?)
