I am a førsteamenuensis (UK: lecturer, US: assistant/associate professor) in the Department of Mathematics at the Norwegian University for Science and Technology. I work in both differential and algebraic topology, both of which require that I use some category theory from time to time. I am also extremely interested in how best to use technology to help us do mathematics, particularly in the purer ends of mathematics where the obvious computational uses are not so useful.

comment Cannot use the hobby package with MiKTeX 2.9
I use the externalisation feature of TikZ to ensure that a journal (or the arXiv) can use any pictures that I create. If you do use hobby to generate a picture for your paper, send me a link to the paper!

By the way, pml3array ("Poor Man's LaTeX3 Array") is one of the files installed by the hobby package.

comment Clever beamer animation? Writing a script that changes a tikz picture in beamer?
Your bounty makes it look as though you don't yet have a satisfactory answer, yet you've accepted an answer making it seem that there's nothing more to be done on this question. Which is it?

comment Extract x, y coordinate of an arbitrary point in TikZ
@sdaau My guess is that the axis environment saves up its drawing commands until the end, so the D node is not positioned until the axis environment is finished. Within the axis environment then \gettikzxy is executed straight away and so before D is positioned. If you shift the \gettikzxy after the \end{axis} then it seems to work. Can you use it like that?

(Untested, hence a comment) Try changing the \begin{frame} to \begin{frame}<1-3,5->.

comment How do you override formatting of PDF with Pandoc and an external template
Maybe you could edit that information in to the question to make the connection to TeX clearer. What would be ideal would be if you could make your question so that someone with no pandoc experience, but expertise in TeX, could potentially answer it. So if you can isolate the part in the template that deals with the issues you're asking about, that'd be great. Even if not, at least link to the template in the question and provide a sample document to test with and instructions on how to compile it.

comment How do you override formatting of PDF with Pandoc and an external template
For those of us less familiar with pandoc than TeX, can you make clearer what the role of TeX is in this question? If it is purely a pandoc question then it is off-topic for this site. I see that you've also put the latex3 tag on, but I don't see any connection to latex3 in the question, maybe you could make that clearer as well.
