Demo diagrams with syntax examples -- see the final one for an example document that I want to render for my team's devops pipeline:
I've always automated my Markdeep documentation's inline PlantUML diagrams with a few scripts here and there (simply looks for .puml files, exports PNG and SVG and hosts everything on a static site), but I've never imagined using a service for supplying the generated output. I want to bounce off this idea somehow.
PlantUML is a major pain. I didn't know about Mermaid at the time.
Latex has a ton of code for building better charts but they're all very very low level.
What's needed is a higher level abstraction here.
It should be possible to have much higher level charts without having to be a latex god.
We've been using Plectica for these sorts of diagrams and finding it to be pretty great. Not sure if they support export to svg out of the box yet though.
