Success Story: RMapViewer

RMapViewer is a tool for chemists to visualise and analyse chemical reaction maps composing of isomers and the reaction pathways between them explored by the GRRM (Global Reaction Route Mapping) software package. The user with RMapViewer can search for particular isomers that matches against several chemical structural descriptors, such as (1) SMILES, (2) InChI, and (3) CAST, as well as (4) topological chemical structures, locate the pathways between two or more isomers specified as a reaction reactant and a product, and animate the motion of a molecular change via chemical reaction along its reaction pathway. RMapViewer has been developed by the support of the "Maizo"-chemistry project (link).

glamorous toolkit alpha.3

Another month has swooshed and now it’s time for Glamorous Toolkit alpha.3:

The key things that changed are as follows:
  •  We rewrote Documenter. This was challenge, but the results are more than worth it. One visible thing is that now the previews get cached, and as a consequence we can actually work inside the document. But, perhaps the more impactful thing is that we can now toggle the visibility of Pillar markup. We think it significantly improves the experience and consequently, the value of the live documents.

Have fun, The feenk team
