Ever thought of making diagrams or plans or Flowcharts?
Yea but you would have faced the problem(s) of installing various software(s) on your machine. Again, they may or may not work on your operating system. And if they worked well, they may have a trial period after which you got to buy it..
How if you could make it for free? And that too Online?
Yes Friends, you read that right.... Free and Online! Here is a tool called gliffy.
Gliffy is a tool that help you to create, share and collaborate on a very wide range of diagrams.
Basically, Gliffy has a very wide functionality and can be used for making various types of diagrams, charts, flowcharts, plans -- which extends obviously some for personal use to that of even a professional, rather an enterprise level use.
And the best part is, it is very generic and extensible.
Creating account is free and you can use all its services for free.
Lets login and see some of its features..
So that's how the screen looks when you Login to Gliffy.
Let's select creating a new Document.
And you get to select from all these... Select your favorite..
And that's the range supported..
I simply took up creating a Flow Chart, with a Fresh Theme. And bingo!
After creating this you got three choices,
1. Save it there
2. Export it as an Image and use it
3. Export it as a GXML and save it for future with you rather than being there.
As such if you are getting something for free, you are sure to have some limitation. One such is over here too! And that is for saving the number of documents on Gliffy.
But you don't need to worry! If you get it exported as an Image and also as a GXML and save it for the future, rather than saving it there on the Gliffy, you can use it as many times as you want to...
And the next time you want to make any changes to the diagram that you had made previously in gliffy, you can directly go an use the import option, and import the GXML to Gliffy, and get started!
So Enjoy making diagrams with Gliffy!
