    I'm not the only developer but I made (and still make) GoJS, an interactive diagramming library for the web.

    https://gojs.net

    Most of its popularity is with large companies building their own internal tools where they need diagramming visualization capabilities (layouts, save/load, undo/redo, data binding, etc). So you won't see it too often in the wild, but under the surface it's used in every industry.

    I love it, and I love HTML Canvas, which I wish was more popular.

    I actually make a diagramming library for the web, called GoJS: https://gojs.net

    So I make all kinds of diagrams, mostly as demonstrations. When developing an API itself, especially one where there are phases (objects must measure themselves and draw in a certain order, and not more than they need to), state machine-style and flowchart-style diagrams are awfully helpful.
