Alligator Eggs revisited

At the moment I spend a lot of time on polishing my PhD thesis. Therefore, not so many new posts appear on this blog in these days. However, today I would like to follow up on my last post, which was about the visual language of alligator eggs. A colleague of mine, Torsten Strobl, has created a very nice editor for alligator eggs expressions. It even animates the evaluation of such expressions, i.e. alligators eat other alligators (but don't worry, there is no blood).

Here is the video:

As a PhD student you're going to hate all this obvious feedback.

Provide a palette instead of a color number.

Elements should be dragged, you can resize them later.

Nice. It's easier to understand than the birds representation. Here all you need to know is what happens with function application.
