Simple feature request that would help people who are idiots at math like me


#1

Would be nice if we could type in simple equations instead of hard numbers for gumball transforms and in command parameters


(Pascal Golay) #2

Hi Ryan- you can do this at the command line but not in the gumball, though I imagine that is not impossible to implement either. To make calculations on the command line, use the format

=(equation in here)

e.g. Line 0 =(3.1278*4.25)

this will constrain the line length to whatever 3.1278*4.25 is. Is that what you are looking for? This is a python thing, so the very first time you do it in a session it takes a while to kick in while Python gets loaded into memory.

#3

yes that’s it…

hrmm is there a technical reason for the extra keystrokes? Could this not be made to work sans () and =?


#4

I mean… unless you needed the () for order of operations inside your equation. But they could be optional, no?
