Macro system for Spectral Workbench API

by warren | March 08, 2013 21:28 08 Mar 21:28 | #6247 | #6247

The Spectral Workbench API is getting a boost with a new system for sharing macros, released late this week. Since it's an early-stage release, there are few links to it on the SpectralWorkbench.org website, but you can published macros and share your own it by visiting this page.

Some notes on the system:

  • currently it's only for Analyze page macros; the Capture page is being rewritten before we release the macro system there
  • we'll be improving both the display of saved macros (with syntax highlighting) and the editor; if you have suggestions, leave a comment here!
  • there will be a way to "install" or "favorite" macros for easy access, and a way to search for them
  • macros may have comments
  • the API continues to evolve but we'll hopefully be releasing some educational macros which will be both useful and educational

The macro system is where we plan to develop a lot of new features for the website; if you have JavaScript coding experience, this is a great way to get involved in shaping and improving Spectral Workbench!
