handcalcs is a CSS library typically used in Utilities, Math, Latex applications. handcalcs has no bugs, it has no vulnerabilities, it has a Permissive License and it has medium support. You can download it from GitHub.
handcalcs is a library to render Python calculation code automatically in Latex, but in a manner that mimics how one might format their calculation if it were written with a pencil: write the symbolic formula, followed by numeric substitutions, and then the result. Because handcalcs shows the numeric substitution, the calculations become significantly easier to check and verify by hand.

A question for square root in Handcalcs plugin for juputer notebook

Asked 2020-Aug-26 at 00:09

I have recently figured out a wonderful tool which renders equations in python to latex format. But there is a small problem that it always adds a bracket for square root which makes it look redundant. Here is a part of my code


import math
import handcalcs.render

pi = math.pi
g = 9.8
uk1 = 0.281
s1 = 10.615
d2 = 4.1579



# a2: acceleration from position 1 to before collision

a2 = -uk1*g
s2 = math.sqrt(s1**2+2*a2+d2)

And the result looks like this:


I wonder it there is any why to eliminate the brackets in the square root. Thx alot.

I am the author of handcalcs.

Currently, there is not a voluntary way of removing the brackets. They are there simply because when using the sqrt function, there are brackets around the function's argument and they therefore appear in the rendered result. I agree, it would be nice to not have those outer brackets within the sqrt sign. If you are willing, please post this as a feature request on the Github page. I can start looking into it.
