Working on the riddles and puzzles from the hackathon was an inspiration for having something quick to use. Inspiration from Mathematica and IPython notebook interfaces as well.

What it does

Supports basic TeX rendering and expression evaluation using contentEditable with react.js.

How we built it

Ran across Facebook's draft.js library which had several examples that looked promising.

Challenges we ran into

Unfortunately, Facebook's documentation for draft.js is somewhat sparse. react.js and webpack in general are difficult to setup.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Developing a first look at something that can be further expanded in numerous directions.

What we learned

Even when libraries look like they offer exactly what you're looking for, sometimes documentation can start to lack when you use them in ways that might not originally thought of.

What's next for rho

Developing an expressive programming language to use in the future for anything day to day.
