Has anyone ever written code for computing Khovanov homology in Macaulay2 or other similar software? I know there are various excellent programs for computing Khovanov homology, but I'm currently interested in a variant that probably will require the algebraic capabilities of Macaulay2 - in particular, the ability to work with modules over a polynomial ring with multiple variables. I'm curious to know if anyone has ever done this before to avoid reinventing the wheel.

    $\begingroup$ I'd ask Ben Webster who in grad school had a program I'm pretty sure was in Macaulay for triply graded HOMFLY homology after Khovanov's Soergel bimodule paper came out. My recollection was that Macaulay2 was actually missing some key features and so he'd done it in Macaulay(1), but I could be misremembering. $\endgroup$ – Noah Snyder Sep 20 '19 at 14:59
