If you need to make a neat little diagram to illustrate an article or documentation for a development project, I have a great free tool for you.
This is called tldraw and it allows you to draw basic geometric shapes, to link them, to put some text and above all to then export all that in SVG or JSON format.
Here’s an SVG rendering of the thing:
The interface is really well thought out, especially since in addition to the web interface that you will find here, there are also plugins for code editors like Visual Studio or word processors like Taio.
And if you’re curious to see what’s next, the next tldraw release in dev is available here.
And tldraw will also appeal to developers since you can manipulate it using its API directly from the browser’s dev console as you can see from these tweets.
Really great ! A service that joins my toolbox!
