Language Reference


Nodes should be of the format Name (x,y). The name can contain spaces and \n, and the x/y can be integers or decimals. All dimensions go from 0 - 100, so 50 means 50% of the way through. You can also specify the shape by appending `[Square]`, `[Triangle]`, or `[x]`. eg.


Edges connect two nodes. They use the format Node -- Node (line only) or Node -> Node (with arrowhead). eg.


You can place a blocker in front of a node by using [Blocker] Node. eg.


You can draw evolution arrows by using [Evolution] Node +x or [Evolution] Node -x. eg.


You can add notes [Note] (x, y) Text where x and y are numbers, and Text is any text with spaces or \n

Modifying the axes

If you need more space for one of the four segments you can use [I] x, [II] x, or [III] x,

The parser doesn't enforce position, so if you put axis iii before axis i, you'll get some rendering issues.
