# Asymptote Support

I was wondering if Brilliant could implement asymptote so that we can draw diagrams and post them a little easier. Also, the $$ tags for latex might be a little better. Note by Taehyung Kim 7 years, 5 months ago This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science. When posting on Brilliant: • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused . • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone. • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge. • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

We are exploring a way to make this possible, but we don't have a date for when it will be live. Here is a hack that allows you to post images around Brilliant.org: • Upload an image to imgur or some other image hosting service. • Click on the uploaded image to get the direct link to the image (it should look like i.imgur.com/LeTersNumbers.jpg). • Copy that link, and embed it in your post by doing this ![Alt text](https://i.imgur.com/G66iLMC.jpg). Make sure that it says https is at the beginning of your image link. If it isn't there after you paste it, you can safely add it yourself. • Preview and Post!

But after posting the comment the image looks normal. Alt text Thanks for that! - 7 years, 5 months ago Log in to reply What's going on with the Asymptote project now? - 6 years, 8 months ago Log in to reply Not sure I understand. We have no plans to support it at this time since it would exclude to many people. Staff - 6 years, 8 months ago Log in to reply Okay. I was just asking if Brilliant will ever incorporate a feature (similar in nature or perhaps even Asymptote itself) where you can draw geometry problems and assist in aiding others with diagrams. :D - 6 years, 8 months ago Log in to reply Not soon. It is much more likely that we will implement the ability to take a picture of a drawing since billions of people could use such a feature easily (via their phones) rather than millions. Staff - 6 years, 8 months ago Log in to reply Ah, I see. That's actually a fantastic idea. :D - 6 years, 8 months ago Log in to reply I support both of these changes. The only thing we might have to worry about is places where  is already used as a dollar sign. These will have to be changed to \$$.
