Towards a Wardley Map Smart Cell

Here are the notes on how to write a smart cell:

Before I build the smart cell I need to change the input format from a list of strings in javascript to a text block that uses the current syntax of onlinewardleymaps.

The current major deviation is the implementation of the evolve type which I am using two coordinates rather than one. Also there is no explicit offset mechanism, instead labels have a white underlay.

It is also missing title, alternative x-axis titles and annotations.

I had initially tried to implement this with VegaLite, but found that was more suitable for traditional charts. D3.js is a lower level library. You have to do slightly more work yourself, but gain complete control: everything in software development is a compromise.
