I think someone already mentioned that having ob-asymptote.el within Org
does not require the end users to install anything.

It is sufficient, but I am not sure whether those examples are a good
way to start.

If you want to get acquainted with Asymptote, I suggest that after
setting it up you take a minimal example like the following

#+begin_src asymptote :file result-figure.pdf
size (8cm, 0);

and then use various sources such as the ones below to explore and learn:

- Charles Staats' Asymptote tutorial


- Asymptote manual


- Art of Problem Solving forums, which use Asymptote as their built-in
  graphics language, e.g.


  (click on a diagram to see the corresponding Asymptote code).
