I asked a question about Asymptote which was closed as off topic.
I believe it fits within the scope of the site in much the same way a pure
metapost question would. There have been both pure
metapost and pure
asymptote questions asked and answered, none of which were closed as off topic. Examples being
Obviously, just because it has happened before does not mean it should happen again, so I don't take the existence of the above questions to prove anything. However, each is a question about a graphic tool that:
- is compatible with LaTeX, and
- which (barring
luamplib) require an external program to compile, and
- do not contain a trivial document wrapper (i.e. are questions purely about the tool)
I don't particularly care one way or another, but do feel that there should be consistency with respect to how these questions are treated.
