i don't actually know what gatsby gives you... i'm kind of assuming its something like nextjs, which is what i have written some sites in (and that plays fine w idyll)
let me know if i'm way off and this is not the right level of abstraction and we can investigate further

Thanks @mathisonian ! Now that I've looked at Next.js I am strongly considering using that instead of Gatsby

@mathisonian
np @danmarshall! if you have questions about that my blog has some examples with next - e.g. passing in a string of markup https://github.com/mathisonian/mathisonian.github.io/blob/master/pages/writing/apparatus.js or from a file https://github.com/mathisonian/mathisonian.github.io/blob/master/pages/writing/a-short-note-on-debuggers.js

one other good example - the idyll docs: https://idyll-lang.org/docs
we're hosting it on vercel which seems to work pretty well and is pretty performant. the only thing i can't figure out how to do is get it to read the idyll file from the file system rather than shoving it in a string
curious to hear where you end up @danmarshall i think with a little more polish we could get a really nice reusable setup

Hi!
I am also quite new to Idyll but really loving it so far - thanks a lot for putting this out!
I was wondering, with the Annotation component is there a way to combine it with a Graphic? I.e. if I hover over a word that a picture is shown?

@mathisonian
hi @johanna-einsiedler, welcome!
unfortunately the annotation component only displays text at the moment, but this seems like a pretty reasonable feature request, it would be good to support
would you mind opening an issue on Github so it has visibility and we can track progress? https://github.com/idyll-lang/idyll/issues/new?assignees=&labels=&template=feature_request.md

Thanks a lot @mathisonian!
I see - yes great suggestion, I will open an issue :)

Sorry for bothering you so much - but is there a way I can specify that my chart axis should be displayed as a date (and not e.g. 1,900 instead of 1900)?
I am a complete newbie to web development (coming more from the data science side), so my apologies if this is a stupid question.

@johanna-einsiedler are you using vega lite or the built in [Chart /] for this?

@mathisonian One more question: I am trying to add a SVG as a background. Is there a tutorial available somewhere? Thank you

Hi, is there a way to generate static/pdf printout of the idyll article - I could use pdf printer from the browser but I am looking for having more control, e.g. specifying page breaks?

Is there a way to profile Idyll somehow?

Hi folks! I've got a TA trying to install and use the vega-lite plug in (Windows) and is running into an error I haven't seen before:

just curious if folks have any idea about what this one means. Thanks!

Hi, first of all thank you for idyll, it seems a great tool
I have a very basic question. If I want to write a data story post, using idyll, and I wont do add in the text a sentence of this kind "The data for today, December 8, 2021", how to use a variable and get that date every day to fit the current date?

I know probably the mine is a stupid question. Is the answer "simply use javascript"?
