Mermaid Live Editor

Simplify documentation and avoid heavy tools. Open source Visio alternative. Commonly used for explaining your code! Mermaid is a simple Markdown-like script language for generating charts from text via JavaScript. Mermaid has been around for a while now, but is gaining popularity due to the increase in personal knowledge management tools and other Markdown based apps that are including Mermaid support. One such tool is, which I mentioned above. It allows you to include diagrams in your slides using Mermaid. And with support for ~9 different diagram types, you should be able to find something appropriate. I link to this site as it is a live editor that will allow you to interactively build your diagram. And it was created using Svelte. :)
