It is exciting indeed - we should just find a simple way to use developer API of WA to produce those equations and graphs without all extra stuff around them in pages - like http://www4f.wolframalpha.com/Calculate/MSP/MSP41419612icgb71eea9e000040f2377b25ifc76i?MSPStoreType=image/gif&s=58
The image links don't work by the way-thrashed through that when creating the page ok your test site, and there are no output or other options from the current demo (or at least I have yet to find a key that works- LOL) but all that will be fixed when api can be directly invoked.
I noted that my little circle demo was produced with a grid, while simultaneous inequalities only had axes, and I have yet to figure out out to control that-trial and error from examples until they make api and docs available.....
But it is an incredible tool, which will I think they will leverage as a net hub looking at becoming like a google math and will set them back big coin, so the longterm question is how they will pitch access and whether they will break out engine from db behind it and make the engine freely available
No word yet on the API .....
It is not permitted to use Wolfram|Alpha indirectly through another website that has created a large number of deep links to Wolfram|Alpha, or that automatically constructs links based on input that you give on that site, rather than on Wolfram|Alpha. You may not in effect use Wolfram|Alpha through an alternate user interface presented by another website.
Finally, it's also not permitted to use frames or other browser technologies to embed or surround the Wolfram|Alpha website with your own material without permission from Wolfram|Alpha. If you are interested in using Wolfram|Alpha in an embedded way, please contact us.
I'm no legal expert, but we might not be able to interface in the ways we would really like.
This won't solve all out maths problems but a combination of the following should be a very good start.
- Google charts. http://code.google.com/apis/chart/
and if a link has a single link that open WA as new window (as attached file)?
Russ from WolframAlpha... just wanted to give you all an update that the API is almost ready. It's looking like late August, early September.
Also I should note we are looking to the community to construct platform and language bindings.
it's been two months without a peep since you said the API was "almost done". In the meantime folks here seem concerned about implications of license boilerplate.
Can you give us an update as far as what will be rolled when, as well as an explanation of changes that gave been made to the demo mode?
Ohhhhh...... I guess it is unlikely Russ will be responding as he no longer has a current profile in this course, lol
