As a software engineer, I often find myself at the middle of a large and complex codebase, trying to understand how a feature works. My usual approach is just tracing those function calls and piecing together a mental map of the code.
It can be overwhelming to keep track of everything when dealing with
codes that spanning numerous files, along with various "if..else.."
Often the case, I found myself lost in the codebase, and have to start over again.
That's my 1st thought, but I don't want to leave my code editor,
switching to another tool and
losing my "codes" context
So then, I thought, why not build a diagram tool that lives inside VS Code?
1. This is how it looks inside VS Code
2. To draw a box, just select your codes and "Snip it"
3. Share it anywhere outside VS Code with a link
Try the below diagrams (which I created inside VS Code)https://www.codediagram.io/app/shares?token=5dd29b65
