I don’t think it’s huge but it is specific and has some specific challenges. Largely the projects kind of extend outside of Julia world, but they do need to hook into it, and do so sometimes specifically.
What do you mean by tags?
Do you mean search words? Maybe things like “arduino”, “USB”(serial means too many things), “Andor”, “camera”, “bluetooth”, “RS232”, “3d print”, “modbus”, “raspberry pi”(sometimes).
Could end up extending to other things eventually like “gcode”, “CAD”, etc. Could replace things like LabView, or those MatLab toolbox thingies. We have awesome access to optimization algorithms, I can only imagine what we could do by letting Julia do path planning for CNC’s or optimize CAD models from FEM results and things.
Now that we have an awesome way to handle binaries I think these types of projects could be more realizable. I used to have to hack around in java to build interfaces to my arduinos and write slow complicated computations in java on the data to avoid other languages. No more!
