Mathbin Desktop Application
What I have in mind is an editor similar to Tex Fog.
Got an itch to write something, but can't think of any useful wheels that haven't been invented a million times before?
If so, then that's perfect! I want you to write this.
My personal project queue is about a thousand times longer than the amount of time I have to spend on anything.
What's in it for you?
- An interesting project to work on
- (More) Experience coding a real, full-fledged desktop application
- You can put it on your resume
- Credit on this webpage
- A warm fuzzy feeling, rainbows ending on your doorstep, making it on Santa's "nice" list, and all that.
Ideally we would have a separate desktop app for each desktop environment (Cocoa, GTK+ and/or KDE, and Windows)... however this is probably impractical. As such, a more suitable initial goal is a cross-platform Java app.
The site has a backend script,
http://mathbin.net/backend.html. It accepts the following optional parameters:
name (the user's name), and
title (the title for the post). One of these two parameters is required:
eq (an equation, without EQ or IEQ tags), or
body (complete body for the post, marked up as you would from the website).
If you're interested
The backend script is totally up for change, by the way. So if you have some great idea but that limited backend doesn't cut it, by all means let me know.
