I had an idea to use some Unicode characters in my Go projects, particularly ones that are physics or calculation based projects. But I personally did not want to have to either copy and paste the unicode characters or have to manually type in the unicodes for the various characters.

So I devised a solution, which was to write a simple parser that would regex out LaTeX commands for Greek letters and insert the correct character from a map stored within the application binary.

As of October 2019, I have released a β version to see what else can be implemented or how the idea can be improved upon.
