The Liquid View is part of a wider workflow which is as least as important as the visualisations since if the user cannot comfortably add to the system, interact with it and publish in a useful way, it simply will not be of more than ‘academic’ interest.

HyperGlossary on WordPress
A significant part of the system is the use of WordPress to store what will be the nodes in the view, using the HyperGlossary system which is a means of using basic formatting for systems to parse. The information stored as WordPress posts uses the Header tags to specify attributes like ‘Short Definition’, ‘Long Definition’ and how they refer to other HyperGlossary Terms/Nodes.
Liquid | Browser Plugin
The user can import PDF documents from download sites and have them automatically converted to Rich PDF documents through the Liquid Browser Plugin. This has the benefit that when the user downloads the PDF document it gets all the useful Citation information appended so that the user can simply copy text from that document into their work and it will automatically be pasted as a Citation, and that the Liquid View will be able to open the full PDF when the user requests.
Liquid | Author
Liquid | Author is the base application for this and is an active, successful application on the macOS App Store. It’s function is as the word processor the student will be authoring their Literature Review in.
