This question is a little abstract. I found LaTeX recently when looking for a typesetting tool for my educational app. Memories of using it years ago during my physics degree and reading about it when learning about computer graphics came back quickly.
Matchoo! is a game that's designed primarily around matching images and text. Modes include simple drag and drop operations, or physics and more gamey arcade style level. The users can create packages that combine gameplay with their content.
I'm using LaTeX to allow users to add chemical equations, guitar chords or music phrases. The app squirts their markup to my backend which returns an image for the game modes to use. You can see a very simple example below.
Right now Matchoo gameplay works best with smallish data - the example gives you some idea.
Now - I came to LaTeX specifically for mathematical and chemical equations but have been pretty impressed by the depth of content. I'm looking for inspiration on what can be done in LaTeX and what packages would be good for me to look at. Examples might be UML flow diagrams, music (I'm looking at
gchords and beyond), electrical diagrams, architectural models.
- What packages provide easy typesetting for my small image rather than large document requirement?
- What packages exist that would allow me to extend my users ability to author learning packages with minimal learning of markup languages?
So far I'm using
amsmath - experimenting with
Thanks for any suggestions!
