Feature Request: Allow creating operators the same way you create normal variables

See original GitHub issue

You have a nice interface for creating normal variables, but when you want to start using Operators, you end up stuck in the Operator screen for most of it, which is harder to use and doesn’t look as good. I’d much rather just use the regular interface to create the operators. Seeing the input types and output types without having to hover over them would be very helpful as well.

Ok, I am not sure why that shortcut is necessary as opposed to creating a boolean true variable

People like to be lazy, including myself 😃

It’s definitely technically possible to do what you want. If @rubensworks is okay with the possibility for confusion, I can try to PR it.

I think we can get the best of both worlds. What if instead of using blank variable cards, we use a new item for this that is created with a blank variable card (Pattern Variable Card)?

I thought of an intuitive way to do this: if you use an operator but don’t give it any operands, the operator itself would be what gets written to the variable card. You could also reduce the need for “apply” (and “flip” too if you wanted to get really fancy) by writing out a partially applied operator if some but not all of the operands are given.
