I used Mathquill to display and input latex. If you have used Desmos, it is the same library they use.
It’s not perfect but it was a really fun project to make! I was inspired by this Haskell blog post:


The Janiczek/transform might interest you - we use it in elm-in-elm for optimizing AST trees :slight_smile: Sounds like something for your simplify function!

It goes from inside out, trying out various simplifications until it can’t anymore, then goes up.
