Logic View overview

Hex's Logic View is based on the popular notebook format. If you have used a Jupyter or similar notebook, you will be right at home.

As with other notebooks, the Logic View's primary interface is made up of cells, including Code, Markdown (Text), Input parameter, and Display cells like the Table Display.

Hex, however, extends the notebook model in some key ways:

Outline#

The outline provides an easy-to-browse overview of input and output elements from throughout the Logic View. You can click any element in the outline to automatically jump to that position in the logic.

Dropdown with options to rename or duplicate the project, or export the project as .ipynb file.

Input elements in the outline are fully interactive, allowing you to adjust upstream parameters without excess scrolling.

The outline is a key element when building an app. We'll cover it in more detail in the App Builder section.

Cell outputs, like charts or tables, are given default output names (e.g., "Output 3") but you can rename them by clicking the name anywhere it appears.

Custom output names will then appear as labels in the App Builder:
