Hi Stephen, I'm assuming you meant something like Snap (http://snap.berkeley.edu) in Dr Racket?
Snips are powerful; they can inserted in text and pasteboard editors; they can be dynamic(e.g. plot), and they can contain other editors(text or pasteboard). The only possibly related prior work I’m aware of was an insert-gui functionality in DrRacket (maybe even DrScheme?) which allowed you to insert GUI elements into program text. There was a query about 'Extending DrRacket with non-text tabs' that might be helpful (see https://groups.google.com/d/msg/racket-users/Iu2XtxNX_Kk/SiavnnkYDEoJ) The DrRacket plugins documentation has a example of extending DrRacket https://docs.racket-lang.org/tools/implementing-tools.html Kind regards, Stephen D some documentation links: * DrRacket Plugins: http://docs.racket-lang.org/tools/index.html * Graphical Interface Toolkit: http://docs.racket-lang.org/gui/ * Pasteboard(editor): http://docs.racket-lang.org/gui/pasteboard_.html On Thu, 28 Dec 2017 at 04:30, Stephen Foster <step...@thoughtstem.com> wrote: > If I wanted to build a drag-and-drop, visual programming interface for > programming in DrRacket, is there any prior work I can build on?
