Questions about fancy map rewriting via core.logic
{:mapping {:y :mpg}
:stat (stat/quantiles)})
;; =>
{:mapping {:upper :q75, :min :min, :lower :q25, :max :max, :middle :q50, :y :mpg}
:stat #com.keminglabs/c2po$stat$quantiles {:dimension :mpg}
:geom #com.keminglabs/c2po$geom$boxplot {}}
;;I'd like to use core.logic to rewrite "colloquial" plot specifications into full, correct specs from which the C2PO compiler can generate graphics.
;;A full C2PO plot spec looks like:
{:data [...] ;;A seq of maps
:group :identity
:stat :identity
:mapping {} ;;A map from a geom's aesthetic to a key in the data maps, e.g., {:x :weight, :y :miles-per-gallon}
:geom :point
:scales {} ;;A map of aesthetic keywords to scales, e.g., {:x :linear}
;;Right now the rewrite system uses core.logic to bind lvars onto a rewrite map that is deep-merged into the original spec.
;;For instance the [rule rewrite] pair
[{:mapping {:x ?x, :y ?y}, :geom :boxplot, :group !_}
{:mapping {:x :group/midpoint, :width :group/bin-width, :y !_}
:geom :boxplot, :group #group.bin {:dimension ?x}, :stat #stat.quantiles {:dimension ?y}}]
;;matches any spec that has an x and y mapping with a geom :boxplot and does NOT have a group key specified.
;;The rewrite builds a spec for the user's intent---to group the data along the x-dimension into bins and then draw a boxplot for each bin.
;;Specifying OR
;;It would be nice if the match template could "OR" at certain locations:
{:group (or !_ #group.bin{:dimension !_})}
;;should match a map where there is no :group key, or where the :group key has a #group.bin {} record without a specified dimension.
;;The reason we need this is because users who write
{:data mtcars
:mapping {:x :weight :y :mpg}
:geom :boxplot}
;;will, after getting boxplots for 0--2 tons, 2--4 tons, ... try to make the bins smaller by saying:
{:data mtcars
:mapping {:x :weight :y :mpg}
:geom :boxplot
:group #bin {:bin-size 0.5}}
;;and if this didn't work they'd be (rightfully) surprised/upset.
;;Constraints outside of current subtree
;;An ideal syntax for predicates on the data (e.g., the type of data: numeric, categorical, ordinal) would be to put the constraints directly on the lvars in the mapping:
{:mapping {:x (numeric? ?x)}}
;;should only match specs where whatever is mapped to x is a numeric value.
;;This match should succeed for:
{:data [{:this 1 :that "grr"} ...]
:mapping {:x :this}
;;but not for
{:data [{:this 1 :that "grr"} ...]
:mapping {:x :that}
;;To actually implement this, the constraint would need to have access to the toplevel spec, not just the subtree currently being unified.
;;An implementation might look like:
(defn numeric? [var spec]
(number? (get-in spec [:data 0 var])))
;;Keyword/Record matching
;;The group, stat, and geom can all be specified using keywords as short hands or fully as a record of the appropriate type, e.g., #geom.point {}.
;;Ideally rules will hook into an existing multimethod lookup system so they can handle this transparently.
;;I.e., the match
{:geom :point}
;;should use the fact that
(geom/lookup :point) ;;=> #geom.point {}
;;to also match maps like
{:geom #geom.point {}}
;;If a record is used in the match, then the match should only succeed if the target has a record of the same type.
;;If values are specified in the match record, they should be considered as well:
{:geom #geom.point {:fill "black"}}
;;should only match points with a black fill.
;;A confounding factor here is that c2po's record constructors have defaults, so #geom.point{:fill "black"} will actually init as
#geom.point {:x 0, :y 0, :radius 10, :fill "black", :stroke nil, :opacity nil}
;;but in the match we only want to consider what was explicitly provided, :fill "black".
;;Specify rewrite priority
;;Conceptually it'd be really nice to specify all the defaults in the rewrite system.
;;If a group isn't specified, the spec should use the identity grouper:
[{:group !_} {:group #group.identity {}}]
;;However, if this rule runs before, say, the histogram rule:
[{:mapping {:x ?x, :y ?y}, :geom :boxplot, :group !_}
{:mapping {:x :group/midpoint, :width :group/bin-width, :y !_}
:geom :boxplot, :group #group.bin {:dimension ?x}}]
;;then the histogram rule will never match (even though it totally should).
;;Is there a clean way to specify priorities in core.logic, or will this need to be done manually by separating the rules into different buckets and iterating over them manually rather than with membero?
