Diagram-building service library + executable #7
(Imported from http://code.google.com/p/diagrams/issues/detail?id=43. Original issue from byor...@gmail.com on September 2, 2011, 07:58:27 PM UTC)
We need generic tools for taking diagrams code and turning it into images, which can be called either as a library or from the command line. There is already code for doing this in the diagrams-hint project, as well as in two places in the diagrams-doc repository (one for building diagrams in the web gallery, the other for building inline diagrams in the documentation). This code ought to be factored out into one library+executable that provides a diagram-building service. Perhaps the library should be in one package which is somehow backend-agnostic; and we could then have one package providing an executable for each particular backend.
