I’ve been curious about Tinderbox for a long time, especially in finding out how people in scientific and technological fields might use it.
Personally, the study (and teaching of) mathematics and computer science (in particular - but not limited to - programming) are most relevant to me.
Any students/academics/independent researchers using it in the aforementioned areas? And if so, what do you like/dislike about it?
One deal-breaker for me to even consider using Tinderbox would be that I should be able to input and view nicely typeset mathematics and code (re code, syntax highlighting would be a plus but not a deal breaker) . I’m quite comfortable with markdown with MathJax support and don’t usually need the full power of LaTeX. Would Tinderbox be able to provide this in an easy-to-use way?
(At the moment, Typora is my go-to program for writing notes, and I love its “seamless live preview” capabilities.)
I understand Tinderbox is scriptable and as someone with a bit of background in programming I might be at something of an advantage, but the question is, what kind of things could I do with this capability?
