Anyone using AJAX, SVG, and Rails?


#1

I’m interested in the idea of using AJAX and SVG to create a
simple diagram editor. It seems like Rails might be able to
support this sort of thing, so I thought I’d ask if anyone is
doing anything in this direction.

Hi Rich,

I just saw this today. I’d love to have a diagram editor, but before
committing time to this project, look at the Dia project
(http://www.gnome.org/projects/dia/) and see if you can do better.

If you ever get the chance to reproduce Micrografx Windows Draw, please
let me
know, as I’d volunteer to do some work on that. Micrografx Windows Draw
is by
far the best vector drawing (not diagramming) software I’ve ever used,
and
it’s a Windows-only abandoned program that has trouble running on
anything
newer than Win98. It came with a huge bunch of clip art of questionable
license, that could quickly be reproduced with “open” clip art made by
various Windows Draw users.
