  • mermaid-cli

    Project mention: Mermaid: Create diagrams and visualizations using text and code | | 2022-05-05

    I come from past experiments with (py)graphviz, yed, probably a couple other forgotten things. (As well as manual diagrams in LucidChart and even Inkscape.) And am generally a non-web python guy.

    I was looking at Mermaid last weekend, since a coworker has praised it a few times and I was wanting to play with it.

    I think my expectation of how to use it was wrong? I typically expect to share my diagrams as .png files. The main documentation didn't seem to give much guidance in this usecase.

    I ended up going to ... there didn't seem to be a simple install-and-use pathway similar to `apt` or `pip`, so I ended up trying the docker image for it. I got it working to create pngs, but I thought having to mess with docker volume mounts and defining my own aliases (`alias mermaid='docker run -u $UID -it --rm -v ~/mermaid:/data minlag/mermaid-cli -i'` so I can do `mermaid blah.mmd` in my ~/mermaid folder) was a bit cumbersome...

    Just sharing to see if there's hot takes on where I went wrong, I guess. (for example, I certainly didn't extensively read the docs to understand the usage paradigm it's intended for)

  • pmt

    A robust solution for creating PDF media with Pug.

    Project mention: I love LaTeX. I hate LaTeX | | 2022-05-24

    I also have a love & hate relationship with LaTeX. I think it really boils down to the following:

    LaTeX will work excellently for you, so long as your use case was envisioned by the original authors.

    I can't say that the original authors of LaTeX didn't envision using it for creating slideshows/presentations, but I can say that making a beamer theme is uniquely complicated. I wish that LaTeX had something as flexible as CSS for styling documents rather than the awkward commands, etc. used now—so much so that I attempted to replace LaTeX with a HTML & CSS -> PDF workflow in the past [0]. It is still an idea I want to revisit someday when I have more time.
