Getting started

A brief description on how to use Parsify Desktop.

Introduction

Parsify Desktop is a text-based calculator, meaning it evaluates the expressions you type.

It has a lot of features built-in and can be extended even further using plugins, but let's start with some basic ones!

Headers, comments, labels

To make your notes more organized & readable, you can use headers, comments and labels, which will not be evaluated by the app:

# This is a header
// This is a comment
Label: 12+5

Math

You can type both basic and advances expressions and the results will appear on the right. Constants, like pi or e are supported. Instead of sign operators, like +, -, * and / you can also use words - plus, minus, times, divided by.

# Basic stuff
12+5 //=> 17
2 * (3/4) //=> 1.5
1000 times 2 //=> 2000
// Something more advanced...
sin(3) //=> 0.1411
log(pi) // -> 1.145

Variables

Declare variables are reuse them later, saving time and improving readability.

x = 2
x * 2
sin(x)

Units

Parsify Desktop supports unit conversion. Common length, volume, mass, force, energy and much more are included. If that's not enough, you can also add your own (requires activation).

10 ml in teaspoons

Currencies

You can convert different currencies in the app. By default, there are 32 fiat currencies supported.
