something serverside backend that connects to the free maxima math
program. I have extensive knowledge of ruby on rails, so I would prefer
to call Maxima with ruby, but I don’t know if this is even possible. Its
fairly easy to call Maxima (with a lisp implementation) using ANSI C, it
is a little less easy to implement using JAVA with a lisp implementation
like Armed Bear, but I don’t see any information about using Maxima with
Ruby or Ruby on Rails.
Since Maxima as far as I can tell is the number one most powerful
open-source math program, and RoR is my favorite open-source web
framework, it would seem like a good fit. Has anyone implemented any
math heavy applications with RoR, and can you give me any advice (anyone
know if RoR and maxima is possible) ??
