Diagrams.net (formerly Draw.io) lets you illustrate your documentation by creating diagrams for processes, product architecture, workflows, relational schema, and more. 

Draw.io files hosted on Google Drive, Github, or Trello can be embedded into any Slite document.

How your embed will work

  • You will be able to navigate in the file, zooming in and out.
  • Unlike other embeds, if you update your diagram / file in Google Drive you will need to refresh your doc or just leave this doc and come back to see the last changes.

How to embed from Google Drive

Note: these embeds will only appear on web, not in the Slite desktop app.

  1. Head to Diagrams.net
  2. Click Share > Get link > Choose "anyone with the link"
  3. Click Create and copy the link
  4. In Slite, type '/draw.io' or choose Draw.io in the inline toolbar and paste your link.

How to embed from Diagrams.net directly (or Github)

Note: your embed will not update automatically in Slite, if the file is not hosted through Google.

  1. Head to Diagrams.net
  2. In the menu, click File > Publish > Link
  3. In Slite, type '/draw.io' or choose Draw.io in the inline toolbar and paste your link.

How to embed from Trello

  1. Add the Draw.io power up, if you don't have it.
  2. In the Trello card, click on 'edit' on the Draw.io file.
  3. In the Draw.io window, open File > Export as URL > Create & copy the link.
  4. In Slite, type '/draw.io' or choose Draw.io in the inline toolbar and paste your link.
