The image above was built from this marble diagram specification.
You can use Swirly in your browser at swirly.dev.
The Web version allows you to edit diagram specifications in real time and export them to an SVG or a PNG image.
Swirly is also available as a command-line utility. To run it, you need a sufficiently recent version of Node.js.
To install Swirly on your machine, just install the
swirly npm package:
npm install -g swirly
diagram.txt with your diagram specification. Take a look at the
examples to learn about the expected syntax.
You can then generate an SVG image from the specification by simply running:
swirly diagram.txt diagram.svg
Swirly can also output PNG images. Since PNG is a raster image format, you may
want to increase the resolution to get a higher-quality result. You can do so by
--scale followed by a percentage. For example, this will render the
image at twice its original size:
swirly --scale=200 diagram.txt diagram.png
