This (made by a friend) is exactly that idea! https://www.anishathalye.com/2019/12/12/constraint-based-gra...

That’s far more sophisticated than I had imagined it would be before clicking the link. Has your friend done research in graph drawing, or SMT solvers?

This has already been posted to HN before : https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=21774018

I would like to thank you because I have been searching for it frantically for the past week without luck.

Wow this is absurdly cool. Would be worth posting to /new (even if it has been on HN in the past)!

This reminds me of http://penrose.ink/siggraph20.html as well.

Those gradient descent optimisation animations are so cool.

Thanks for posting this, your website content is really interesting.

Maybe it is a bug in my version of Firefox but my processor spikes massively when I go to your site.

this is incredibly cool. your friend should do a Show HN post!
