Overview
Write text, get diagrams.
Write text, get a flow chart, a sequence diagram or a gantt.

The chart is inserted in your document, and you can edit its text again afterward.

The people without the addon only see the graphs but cannot change their content.

This is using the mermaidJS 8.5.1  for rendering
https://mermaidjs.github.io/

This is ideal for technical documentation, where having up to dates graphs is more important than having pretty graphs. Only editing a few words here and there is very easy with this addon.

Please keep in mind that this addon is provided for free, i'm not making any money with it. Feel free to leave a review for this addon so that more people get to use it. Review really motivate me to improve the addon. 

The next feature i'd like to implement is theming, for now only 4 default themes are available.

The app now uses the latest version of mermaid by default, so it it crashes (because of an update of mermaid) please contact me on my personal email, renan.lecaro@gmail.com

So far so awesome. Doesn't seem to support the "minimum length of a link" syntax. Too old a mermaid version?

The app has been updated, it will now use the lastest version as soon as it's out (but there's a risk that i completely crashes in case of an incompatible version being released by mermaid)

Almost perfect but there is a difference between the google doc version and the native mermaid online editor. The native mermaid editor can parse generic types of a class memberproperty like this. -List<User> users but the google doc version parser stuck with the character '<'.

I used this today to make a Gantt Chart. It works well, using Alt-Text to store the mermaid source. It could be improved by giving more detailed feedback (error messages) when the syntax is not correct. But I give 5 stars for encouragement!

Great app--edit feature is clutch. Bit more of a graphical editing option would be great, but thats above/beyond expectations. 5 stars.

I created the plugin because the edit was missing in most similar plugins, making them worse than a graphical editor.

This is great, it makes Google Docs somewhat more bearable for writing technical documentation. 🙂 My only suggestion is whether the textarea could be enhanced like a code editor, e.g. support indentation with Tab, keep indentation on new line and have a monospaced font.

Great idea and elegant execution. Two things I'm struggling with that are preventing me from giving this 5 stars: 1) the exclusion function seems to work inconsistently (i.e. I exclude weekends but they still show on the axis). And 2) I would like to adjust the increments on the axis (i.e. go in increments of 2 days or 4 days but it doesn't seem I can do that). Otherwise, very simple and effective tool! If Mermaid can help with the 2 issues, will give it 5 stars! (to clarify: I'm using it for Gantt charts)

I empathize with your frustrations in using Gantt Charts! But, the problem is not with this add-on. It seems unfair to remove a star from the add-on review, since it's out of the developer's control.
