    I like the idea of ASCII diagram editors but... Mac only and doesn't actually use ASCII as it's format? However shiny it's interface may be that seems to defeat the purpose of the portability you are supposed to get.

    I've been using to make and edit simple diagrams, it's fairly basic but sufficient for 90% of what I want so far.

    Tart - draw ASCII art in the terminal with your mouse! (by jtdaugherty)

    I wanted to see how Monodraw compared to my preferred terminal art editor (, but my version of macOS which is only a couple years old is apparently not supported anymore. Tart runs in the terminal, so it works pretty much everywhere. I think it deserves more users, so if you're not on macOS, maybe check it out.
