  • Excalidraw - open source online whiteboard/sketch tool with hand-drawn look and live collaboration. Been using it extensively for work this year and it's so good!
  • Is there an online tool which creates graphics in a style similar to this?
    Excalidraw is the best. I wouldn't use any other tool for as hoc diagramming.

    This article is an introduction to these key components. To support you in practicing your system design skills, I created a Excalidraw component library, you can download for free at the bottom of this article.
  • Export libraries in Excalidraw plugin?
    When I use excalidraw.com I can export the libraries I create. I asumed the same was possible with the excalidraw plugin, but the export button is missing! Is there something i'm missing? Or is this option just not available? I'd really hope there is a workaround so I won't have to recreate this library...
  • I'd like to make a wiki that uses interactive canvases. Does this exist and if not is this how I could make it?
    I'm wondering if I could use something like Wordpress or MediaWiki as the blog/wiki backbone and make each page into an infinite canvas using something like PushPin, ourboard, infinite-canvas, or excalidraw . It also doesn't have to be a literal infinite canvas, but I'd like to make each page a canvas with frames, grid snapping, shapes, lines, content, comments, etc. I'd like to import content like images, gifs, embed 3D object canvas, embed video players, etc.
  • OurBoard – free and open source online whiteboard
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-09
    I have tried quite a few online whiteboards during the pandemic WFH. IMHO nothing comes close to https://excalidraw.com

    No signup needed, clean interface, fast load times and an option to self host makes it an excellent product.

  • My current job is giving me a shot at programming. They use Google App Scripts and Google Sheets as a Database.

  • Smart Notes Desktop App - A Build In Public Product
    dev.to | 2021-10-02
    The 'Personal Notes' section can be used by the learners to store their notes. We decided to make each note as a card (like in Google Keeps) which consists of basic text editing features. On successful implementation, we plan to upgrade them similar to Excalidraw which gives the user a higher degree of freedom for note-taking.

  • Help! Website planning tool needed!
    reddit.com/r/Wordpress | 2021-09-22
    Excalidraw, Excalidraw Libraries (there is a lofi wireframe and website kit) + Obsidian and their Excalidraw plugin is a nice combination imo. You can have your entire planning happening in your note taking / process documentation tool. You can also embed Figma into Obsidian for general design and hidef prototyping.
