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. -r -- Technical editing and writing, programming, and web development: http://www.cfcl.com/rdm/resume.html Contact information: firstname.lastname@example.org, +1 650-873-7841

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.
