Re: flowchart designer
"...is that the charts wont be able to be changed dynamically by the user
embedding a static image, doesn't provide any ability to
update/correct/alter the content of the chart, from within the wiki, which
is what wikis are for."
Not sure that I agree with the "...from within the wiki, which is what
wikis are for." statement.
As a desktop wiki platform, Zim does a beautiful job of providing a way to
enter marked-up text, define inter-page linking to capture associations,
and link to files generated/maintained in other applications that are
associated with the topic of the page. I use these features (and others:
tagging, tasks, etc...) daily as a central part of my work-flow within my
wikis. Probably many other users do too.
I view dynamically editing embedded content within the wiki page as "nice
to have" but not essential. Dynamically editing textual content is what is
essential to me. Apologies if I misunderstood the point, but to me it
implied that Zim was missing the fundamental purpose of wiki's, and I
respectfully disagree: I think Zim is just about perfect...
Keep up the good work, Jaap.
