Picking up on our discussion on nice packages of the Julia ecosystem, What packages are state of the art… I argued that naming isolated packages does the ecosystem disregard because things julia-magically work together and therefore packages do not only add to the ecosystem but multiply. For example you model a trebuchet with
RigidBodyDynamics on one day and find the optimal proportions on the next day with
ForwardDiff . I still (2020) owe you to do that actually.
What kind of short and nice examples with maybe surprising and creative use of package combinations can we come up?
