If I do a mind map I always find myself understanding myself and I use them a lot for personal ideas. But trying to express them using mind maps is like giving someone an uncooked meal.
Sometimes I wish I could find something like a Wiki/Mindmap combination, so that I could see a 'textual' representation (with extra data) for each node in my map. Actually... might as well fork Mindmup and see if I can get something like that started :)
I usually keep programming related stuff in mind maps (how to do X,Y,Z in language A). Cloud+share might be interesting to collaborate when learning a new language etc.
I'll give it a try this week. Good luck :)
p.s.: The logo looks adorable :D
If you haven't already, add an exponential backoff to the save, i.e. if it fails try again in 1 second, 2 seconds, 4 seconds, etc. Google recommend it here https://developers.google.com/drive/handle-errors#implementi....
Also, if it's useful, we created a formal state machine for using the JS client library, the code is at https://github.com/jgraph/draw.io/blob/master/war/js/diagram.... Turning it into a state machine helped visualize which error cases weren't being dealt with.
advantages: it's free, opensource, doesn't hold you ransom for your data, we aim to create a zero-friction interface
disadvantages: less features. mindmup is a month and a half old project, and we develop the stuff we need + the top voted user demands, so MindMeister has many many more features.
