Show HN: Internal wiki with diagrams for software and product teams (github.com)

Hi, I'm the author of Octopus. I'm still wondering why such a great tool as Graphviz (graphviz.org) is not commonly used around the world. I just wanted to show the world how productive this tool is.

Writing software diagrams in plaintext is absolutely a deal breaker for us. It solves so many problems: no need for teaching people how to use external diagram tools (such as draw.io or Gliffy), no need to remember passwords to another app, super easy to edit a diagram (no need to move previous 20 pieces around), super easy to share (it's plaintext!).

Any ideas why Graphviz is not as popular as it deserves to be?

Would be truly internal if it used ldap. Not sure I want to use firebase for internal wikis
