The pitch for Inflex is easily summarized in three areas:
Correctness: It’s a reactive digital workspace just like Excel, but built upon principled foundations which include correctness checks (static types), revision logs of changes, the ability to pin down dependencies that don’t change under your feet, explicit decimal place precision, and discourages duplication of logic seen in spreadsheets.
Flexibility: As in “real” programming, there are more types of data than a table/grid. A social network is a network. A medical record is a record. A family tree is a tree. These are totally every day ideas and deserve their own visual representation. Why should users be limited to a grid?
