So you're posting in a thread to help someone by saying that what they are specifically asking for isn't necessary? How is that help? Your posts so far seem more of advertising your software which you happened to be working on before this thread existed. I advised to start your own thread to do just that: advertise it.In my opinion, cube images are not necessary for the UF5 alg set. Every person interested in these types of algs (even 3-Style) should be able to know what happens to the cube when we use the UF-UR-LB 3-cycle for example, without visualization.
Housing a lot of images was the problem, not generating them. Perhaps if the images are put into a folder which is linked to a FREE spreadsheet software (like Open Office) such that the images are loaded into view as the user scrolls down the spreadsheet, this could be another solution. But the images you show don't show edge DB. @abunickabhi wants to see all piece stickers.But the OP defined the image generation as one of the main problems,
We are not short of software to create cube images. The point of this is to be able to house the images. Yes, a PDF is the best option to hold the images, but it's not user-friendly to search it.and for big alg sets in general this is a valid assumption, which is why I wanted to share my approach here, especially after reading about images generated from an array of colored excel cells, etc..
The most basic versions of Microsoft Office all include Excel. If someone doesn't have any version of Microsoft Excel in 2021 (my software can probably work on Excel 2003), I don't think they have an internet connection, to be quite frank.My approach is platform-independent, it doesn't require commercial software,
I don't disagree with you there. But Microsoft is like Coca Cola. They are definitely not going anywhere (unless we enter another ice age).and it doesn't depend on external tools. It is reasonable to expect that python and latex are still available in a couple of years.
