I recently started using coda and I immediately fell in love with it.
So I thought, what better way to learn how to use it than creating something unnecessarily complex?
That’s why I present to you a coda-only dependency graph!
This is actually more proof-of-concept than an actually finished project.
And there are of course some limitations:
- Each task can only have one child, but it can have many dependencies.
- There has to be at least as much entries in the “dependency” table as there are in the original table. That means whenever you add a new entry, you need to add it also to the “dependency” table (which can be easily automated, but again, this is just a proof-of-concept).
- Because images don’t fill the whole table cell, arrows are created using multiple diacritics (a.k.a. zalgo text), so they don’t look to pretty.
Since this is the first time I created anything in coda, I’m sure there are many things I could done better. Don’t hesitate to tell me about them!
While I probably won’t update this project, that knowledge may be very valuable in my future projects.
