Write A-->B, get a diagram representation with an arrow between circle A and circle B
Listing updated:January 12, 2024
Works with:
108K+
Overview
Write text, get a flow chart, a sequence diagram or a gantt. The chart is inserted in your document, and you can edit its text again afterward.

TIPS : 
- Don't try to add icons, they won't work
- Keep the graph positioned in-line in your document, otherwise you won't be able to edit
- If you are logged in with multiple google accounts, this will only work with the "main" one
- some issues have been reported with chrome on Mac, try using safari or Firefox and see if that helps
- all the mermaid charts should be supported, I update mermaid to the latest version from time to time
- if this app has any issue, your work isn't lost. Do a right click / "alt text" on a chart to see the mermaid source code, then edit your graph in https://mermaid.live 
- if your graph is very big use https://mermaid.live instead
- people without the add-on see the graphs, but cannot change their content.
- This uses mermaid 10 for rendering : https://mermaid.js.org
- there's a similar addon called "PlantUML Gizmo" that works in slide too, but uses a different rendering system and syntax, give it a try

This is ideal for technical documentation, where having up to dates graphs is more important than having pretty graphs. Only editing a few words here and there is very easy with this add-on.

Please keep in mind that this add-on is provided for free, I'm not making any money with it. Feel free to leave a review for this add-on so that more people get to use it. Reviews really motivate me to improve the add-on.

I'm very glad to have this add-on. It doesn't feel polished so I can't give it more than 3 stars. Issues: For large graphs, the preview doesn't always fit the entire output. Also for large graphs, the resulting embedded image in the document feels low-res. It occasionally freezes up, so save your work (commit it to the document) often.

This is awesome. It would be even better if we could change the width of the text field with the mermaid source. It can get quite cramped in there!

Really pleased to find this. Had fun pasting AI generated mermaid code from Notion and ChatGPT. I am pleased that this supports the Mermaid Mindmap and Timeline functions which are stable in v10. Notion does not as yet.

I'm a backend engineer, and I use this plugin to build sequence diagrams of all my backend microservices in google docs. It's amazing!

Work as advertized. Helpful for small graphs or adding snippets of larger graphs.

It is indeed a great add-on. I worked really well and did not work incognito mode (probably security reasons). Also, I would love to see more of this idea in other packages like Google Slide, Sheets, etc so one can easily create presentations via code. Thanks keep it up!

It seems to work for everyone, but when I try to use it I get a permissions error. I allowed it the permissions it asked for so not sure what happen. I'm almost entirely sure it's a user issue.
