  • Getting Started in a New Codebase
    I really love drawing flow charts and diagrams for applications. Tools like miro and whimsical make it easy and shareable. These can be as simple as a tree of components or files and how they relate to each other. Flow charts following the flow of data are super useful, especially if there are any integrations, micro-services, or pub/sub. - Source: / 11 months ago

  • Best free diagram tool alternative in 2023?
    My way-to-go tool in the past year and a half is Whimiscal. It is by far one of the best tools I've used to make architectural diagrams. The main reason is that the end result is beautiful by default. They nailed the UI. I am an engineer with bad graphical design skills, but the result makes people think I invested a lot of time polishing the design of my visualizations, choosing the right color tone, aligning...

  • Visily anyone?
    If money was not an issue at all, for wireframing I would probably prefer Whimsical that I use on my day job - they are a little easier and have a huge set of easily sticking icons, but Visily is a very decent competitor and I didn't really use much Visily's easy switching between wireframes and design. If it happens to work smoothly enough, for me that's already a win over whimsical. Source: over 1 year ago

  • Potentially thinking of switching to Miro
    Another suggestion would be Whimsical. While I haven't used the "Docs" tool in a professional setting, it looks promising. I'm a big fan of Whimsical's wireframing and user flow creation tools (very simple and low-fidelity, I'm able to put together ideas much quicker without worrying about details). Add that to a fairly powerful, but straightforward docs system that can be internally linked with ease, I think it... Source: over 1 year ago

  • Iā€™m overwhelmed ! Helpful setup tips
    For me it helps to visually map it out. I like the brainstorming and flowchart web/app whimsical. I tested lucid charts and miro and this one seems to embed into Notion the best, so can easily follow your own chart on the same page :) Source: over 1 year ago
