GitHub Mermaid support enables developers to quickly create diagrams

GitHub has added native support for Mermaid enabling developers to quickly generate diagrams.

According to GitHub, both open-source and enterprise developers see a productivity boost of around 50 percent when provided with detailed documentation. Rich, visual formats often help to better present information.

Last month, GitHub added support for .svg files to comments in issues, PRs, discussions, and Markdown files like READMEs. However, GitHub says that it recognises the need to be able to keep diagrams up-to-date and create them easily.

JavaScript-based diagramming and charting tool Mermaid takes Markdown-inspired text definitions and creates diagrams dynamically in the browser.
