Continuing the discussion from [ANN] cellsplit - tool for Matlab programmers:
This tool looks like a promising start on the ability to iteratively develop in Rust, just like Jupyter Notebooks allow for Python. But I think that if this (or something similar) was really developed and given some attention, Rust could have something that would make figuring out how to do something in much less painful by granting the ability to compartmentalize code into different cells and run them separately while having a persistent state across the Notebook.
This would really make messing around and experimenting to understand things a lot simpler. Thoughts?
Here’s a list of all the implementations of the Jupyter Notebook in various languages, which might be a helpful starting point: https://github.com/jupyter/jupyter/wiki/Jupyter-kernels. I don’t really have the knowledge to lead an endeavor such as this, but I’d be glad to learn on the job and assist where I can be useful, if this turns out to be something that the community would like to pursue.
