Removing Native Diagrams from Archbee
Having diagrams as a block was fun, but also very troubling. People expect a certain level of quality from the diagramming experience and we certainly can't provide it without focusing a ton of resources on it.
There is great diagramming software out there (we integrate with Mermaid.js, Miro, Lucidchart). We love Miro and we use it at Archbee. As much as we tried to use our own diagramming, it just sucked — hurts to say this, but it's true.
In the end, we decided to remove diagrams from our system, to declare it out of scope. We'll still allow you to build diagrams with Mermaid.js and integrate with great diagramming software moving forward.
We believe narrowing our scope will allow us to provide you with a much better experience with documentation.
The diagramming blocks that have been created in the past will still work until the 1st of January 2023, but we're cleaning up after. It's best to start migrating your diagrams as soon as possible.
Another removed feature, a brighter future for the other features!
