After ages of wanting to avoid the project, I'm finally working on Epitaxy::Structure for work. Lo and behold! It's a lot of fun. I've been asking our engineers for interesting examples of structures and using them as tests for the system. I wonder if we'll want to release this project (to partners, at least) for the sake of common interchange. Sadly, I don't think that'll happen.
My first set of encoding tests is passing, so tomorrow I start writing a set of templates. I picked up the TT2 book today, but I don't think I'll need to consult it much for the simple stuff. I think once I can show off a simple workflow of input to database to report, I'll have some pretty good buy-in.
I'm a little worried about building a good interface for creating structures, but that can come later.
