I've been playing with gzigzag for a few days and have a lot of
questions!. I've read through the docs and as much as the source code as
I can grasp, but apologies if I ask something too stupid.
- As I understand it from the docs the current default space is 'system
space'? and users are not really meant to add cells to it. Is this
correct? and if so where do users add their cells ( is this where slices
- The various modules supplied all only work if the cells are laid out
in the correct order ( e.g I had to read the source code to work out how
to get the Mind module to generate output). Is their some way to force
creation of cells in the required layout for a module or would users
have to read the docs/code for each module to learn how to layout the
- Could the direction keys take an optional repetion argument ala vi so
you can move faster through a row of cells ( e.g. '10i' moves 10 cells
at a time. )
- Could there be special head cells that automatically create a new cell
( not clone) if the user moves the cursor in a direction which has no
current connecting cell( i.e. replicators). Would be a quicker way to
create lots of cells in a rank(right word?).
- Can cells be marked read-only / un-deletable ?
- Is there a global cell text search ?
- More docs and examples on modules please!.
- Is there a way to see all the dimensions that a cell has connections
on ( not just the current viewable 3). Trying to remember everything
you have attached to a cell is a bit difficult.
- After adding a few dimensions it rapidly gets boring cycling through
them to change the current view. Is this something that can be changed
or I am misunderstanding how it should work ( more than likely).
Thats it for now. Its a really interesting program/project and I'd like
to learn more and contribute, its just a bit frustrating trying to work
it all out!.
