- it is big and can do a lot more than what we need now and in the future;
- it has a license preventing us to integrate it into a standalone close source software (AGPL).
The last point, the license, is not really a problem as you can get a special licensing agreement from the authors of Ketcher. The second point can only be solved by shopping around for something different.
After a while, I saddly found nothing matching my requirements, this is why I started a new system. The picture above is a screenshot of a drawing with this new tool. The tool is simpler, easy to maintain and extend and plays well with the libraries I am using for the rest of Cheméo's interface (jQuery).
I hope to be able to switch the component to allow you to draw faster with a simpler interface during the month of October.
Update: Now it works pretty well, of course the mandatory drawing of the Trinitrotoluene with the new tool!
