Drawing diagrams with draw.io

draw.io is a web application that lets you draw flow charts and other diagrams. It works much nicer than office suite tools like LibreOffice Draw.

Its UI is easy to use: Simply drag and drop shapes or arrows from the left-hand side onto your sheet. Drag start/end of arrows to shapes to automatically connect them. You can add text to shapes by selecting them and typing. To add colors, select a shape and use the right-hand panel.

While you can, you don't need to store your charts online. "Offline" storage can be files on your disk (great for adding to a project's repo) or your browser's localStorage. You'll get an XML file that you can load into draw.io again later.

Exporting as image/document supports all kinds of formats, like PNG, SVG, PDF, VSDX, etc.

Once an application no longer requires constant development, it needs periodic maintenance for stable and secure operation. makandra offers monthly maintenance contracts that let you focus on your business while we make sure the lights stay on.
