Generation of diagrams and flowcharts from text in a similar manner as markdown.
Ever wanted to simplify documentation and avoid heavy tools like Visio when explaining your code?
The code below would render the following image
<version> with expected version number.
yarn add mermaid
Request for assistance
Things are piling up and I have hard time keeping up. To remedy this it would be great if we could form a core team of developers to cooperate with the future development mermaid.
As part of this team you would get write access to the repository and would represent the project when answering questions and issues.
Together we could continue the work with things like:
- port the code to es6
- adding more typers of diagrams like mindmaps, ert digrams etc
- improving existing diagrams
Don't hesitate to contact me if you want to get involved.
Make sure you have Chrome browser installed, this project uses Chrome headless to running tests.
If you want real time incremental build:
Manual test in browser:
Manual test in Node.js:
yarn dist npm publish
Command above generates files into the
dist folder and publishes them to npmjs.org.
Thanks also to the js-sequence-diagram project for usage of the grammar for the sequence diagrams. Thanks to Jessica Peter for inspiration and starting point for gantt rendering.
Mermaid was created by Knut Sveidqvist for easier documentation.
Knut has not done all work by him self, here is the full list of the projects contributors.
