- HTML export for WWW publishing
A palette with symbols and parts is also provided for looking up shortcuts or inserting parts and symbols via double-clicking on a palette enty.
Documents can arbitrarily be hyperlinked like HTML documents in the world wide web and references established to all kinds of objects (equations, bibliography entries, section, figures,...) in the same or any other document.
Please see Example Paper for a typical publication created with Cassiopeia. All the derivatives taken in this document were generated automatically by the built-in symbolic algebra system and the graphs drawn by the built-in plotting engine. An automatically generated HTML version of the paper can be found here.
Documents are internally represented in a human readable XML (MathML) format. This allows interoperability with third-party apps and the easy conversion of the documents into any other format. As of version 2.x Cassiopeia can export database documents into *.cspd files (see Saving as XML). These self-contained file-based documents might be sent to peers for review (e.g. via email) that do not have access to the database the document is hosted in. Double-clicking on such a file in Finder.app opens the document in Cassiopeia and allows to work file based as with OpenOffice,... etc.
When it comes to printing Cassiopeia generates LaTeX code, the quasi standard for the publication of scientific papers and books. This LaTeX code is automatically compiled and the resulting PDF opened in Preview.app.
Answers to frequently asked questions can be found here. Cassiopeia.app is a native MacOSX application and available for download now. License Keys and accounts for the Advanced Science Cloud can be obtained here (free of charge - limited number of documents). Commercial licenses are available for a small fee.
