In software documentation, the docs-as-code approach is widely used to improve efficiency and collaboration. However, handling diagrams made with different tools and formats can be challenging.


This presentation shows how to overcome this by using text-based solutions, namely Mermaid and PlantUML, and how to integrate code-based diagrams into documents via Intershop's online help.
