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.

We would love to provide support for asymptote and other more complex packages, but there are serious technical issues, especially when considering people on slow computers and slow internet connections. 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:

What's going on with the Asymptote project now?
Not sure I understand. We have no plans to support it at this time since it would exclude to many people.
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
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.
Ah, I see. That's actually a fantastic idea. :D
Oh, it works!
I wanted to try it but when I clicked on preview, the image looked really small. But after posting the comment the image looks normal.
Thanks for that!
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 $\$$.
