First of all, congratulations for the site! The Observable notebook is an amazing tool for computing interactively. It truly feels like the best thing since spreadsheets, and I think that’s quite the achievement.
I’m here to ask: is there a way to take a certain cell of the notebook and “call” it (recompute its output) with a different value for certain other variables, maybe a few steps up in the DAG of dependencies?
This possibility would make the notebook even more attractive for building a deep understanding of algorithms and systems.
(An interesting document on the matter which got me thinking about Observable and motivated this post is Bret Victor’s Up and Down the Ladder of Abstraction, which is also the inspiration for the title.)
Thank you, and a million thanks again for this great tool!
