Drawing & Visualization Tool
« on: September 24, 2008, 11:02:37 PM »
From a completeness of stack perspective, OpenGoo should consider an equivalent of Microsoft Visio. Such a tool will allow users to visualize, explore, and communicate complex information "visually". Check this article for a list of free online drawing tools:-

There are also very high end Open Source drawing solutions such as Inkscape (http://www.inkscape.org/). But Inkscape is perhaps way too high-end and more suited for graphics designers rather than casual office users who need an simpler drawing and flowcharting tool. Gliffy (http://www.gliffy.com/) is a great example of such a web based solution. If other members have come across any Open Source equivalent (or AJAX drawing component) that we can easily integrate into OpenGoo, please lets discuss.

Yes. Personally I'm more concerned with a flow charting tool than a "paint killer". That said, adding any of this would be a great contribution.

Hi Conrado,

I agree that a diagram tool is way more important than a "Painting" tool. I came across a couple of AJAX based diagramming tools. Check it out:-

Hmm, we can use Ajaxio (http://jameslab.moveable.com/ajaxio/) as a starting point. It is pure AJAX and works well. Currently Ajaxio only suports boxes, but we can look at including stencils for other popular diagram types (Flowcharts, UML, etc).
