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

Mermaid is lightweight and simple to use to throw together a quick flowchart. The ability to work purely within Docs, rather than importing charts from other software, means it is easy to alter the chart on the go. Don't be put off by the code-like interface- it's intuitive and user friendly, even an idiot like me can make something great with it. The team behind it has done a great job responding to feedback and adding new features too. The charts look fantastic with no effort required of you- they're no-nonsense, stylish and easy on the eyes. The main drawback to Mermaid is that layout control is very finicky- you can choose the overall direction of the chart or change the order of your syntax which will (maybe) rearrange parts of the flowchart, but that's about it. It can be a bit of a gamble/trial and error to get a layout you're happy with, and the result can be rather sprawling. If you are creating a complex flowchart with a lot of information, you might want to find another tool that gives you greater control. But for most diagrams you'd put in a document, Mermaid is the best solution.

Hi, i don't think that google docs would let you have multipage flowcharts. Your best bet is to create separate charts and try to have them make sense together.

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.
