## What is this?

diagram-autobuild improves the efficiency of the making diagrams.
diagram-autobuild is supporting the following tools.

- graphviz (http://www.graphviz.org/)
- blockdiag (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/blockdiag)
- nwdiag (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/nwdiag)
- actdiag (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/actdiag)
- seqdiag (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/seqdiag)
- ERAlchemy (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/ERAlchemy)

### Background

If you make a diagram, you usually do the following cycle.

1. Edit the source (e.g. \*.dot)
2. Build the diagram (e.g. execute 'dot' command)
3. Open the diagram
4. Make sure whether the diagram is your intended (If it isn't so, retry from the first)

This procedure is inefficient and bother you.

### Solution

Automation: the above procedure between 2 and 3

diagram-autobuild observes the source file.
If the source file is modified, rebuild the diagram, and the browser which indicates the diagram is reloaded.

## How to install

diagram-autobuild is installed by using pip of Python's package manager.

```
$ pip install diagram-autobuild
```

or

```
$ pip install git+https://github.com/momijiame/diagram-autobuild.git
```
