In this lesson, I cover linking within Tinderbox. This lesson covers the entire complexity gamut, from basic foundational concepts to fundaments, to intermediate actions, to advanced applications of action code.
Links are useful for,
- Visual semantics
- Structural semantics (data analytics and analysis)
- Moving and transforming attribute value
The process of linking helps you curate and incrementally formalize your thinking as you work with your notes.
Furthermore, I discuss why we create links, what links are, how to create links, and some important technical details pertaining to links, like direction and style. I also address how to make links dynamic through action so that you can use them as functional method for moving and transforming data, aka attribute values, throughout your Tinderbox file.
Semantics is the study of meaning, reference, or truth, and links can help us with this visually.
There is a lot to this lesson. The topics covered and when they are covered in the video are listed in the table below.
