Ivan Reese thinks out loud about the design of his esoteric graphical programming system.

    Rabbit Hole

    Rabbit Hole

    Abstraction in VPLs

    Marcin Ignac asked me the following on Twitter:

    "We are actually starting to think of abstractions/groups/sub-graphs in @nodes_io just now. Would you have any pointers to environments doing it well or wishes for a better way of doing it?"

    Yep, I've got wishes.

    Speaking of Marcin's Nodes project, this is essential reading: https://nodes.io/story/

    Every visual programming language should have that depth of thought put into it, and should share that thinking out loud. Beautiful stuff.
