From time to time, people ask “How do I make Tarski do x?” Often, the answer is “With a plugin.”
However, people’s ability to implement the things they want to achieve often prevents them from being able to do it themselves. If the idea is sufficiently general that I think more than one person might be able to benefit from it—and sometimes even if it’s not—I’ll write one myself.
Here I’ve collected a number of these small example plugins, in the hopes that they will, in the first instance, be useful to people, and in the second, that they will provide a simple way to learn about the Tarski hooks API.
If you come across a plugin on the forum which I’ve missed here, or which is broken or out of date, please get in touch and let me know.
