Pathfinder is inspired by Google Docs and Git.
What it does
It provides and easy to use tool to define technology subtrees.
How we built it
With great puzzlement and stress.
Challenges we ran into
Not enough time to complete the essential features.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The interaction is fairly modern and Asana-ish.
What we learned
A lot. Building and playing with this model of map writing was very instructive and led me to conclude that the Pathfinder approach is likely wrong. In the repo, I propose an alternative.
What's next for Pathfinder
Pathfinder-1 will implement an alternative model better suited to tech map writing.
