Adding Mermaid To RIMdev.io
A picture is worth a thousand words, so I assume a diagram is worth a billion words. Expressing our ideas is important and our blog is an outlet to not only share with our teammates, but the broader community of readers. Mermaid is a simple markdown based diagramming language with a compelling result.
Placing the following html in our posts…
<div class="mermaid"> graph TD; A-->B; A-->C; B-->D; C-->D; </div>
results in the wonderful diagram below.
graph TD; A-->B; A-->C; B-->D; C-->D;
Additionally, I can create diagrams like this.
sequenceDiagram participant Alice participant Bob Alice->John: Hello John, how are you? loop Healthcheck John->John: Fight against hypochondria end Note right of John: Rational thoughts prevail... John-->Alice: Great! John->Bob: How about you? Bob-->John: Jolly good!
