Even though I love excalidraw for System Design live interviews, this is not a Diagrams as Code tool.

I am more interested in what ByteByteGo guys uses to draw their diagrams.

Another addition : https://dreampuf.github.io/GraphvizOnline/

This is similar to above dot-to-ascii.ggerganov.com, but this generates png/svg

Also check out our project https://ballerina.io/

We generate diagrams from the code and vice versa.

These are really awesome, thanks! Hopefully you guys can give some insight on animation software like for your bytebytego youtube channel! :)

I would really also like to know which animation software he's using for creating the youtube videos. I have a Youtube educational channel of my own and I would wish to add some animation to the explanations too. Thanks.

I would really like like to know the software used for animation as well. It really helps in explaining the concepts well.

I think they disclosed it elsewhere, it was just After Effects.

have you figure this out, does anyone know what tool do they use at ByteByteGo?

I have just published an article about Diagrams as Code at https://cloudnativeengineer.substack.com/p/enhancing-software-design-with-diagrams.

I explore in great details what you can achieve with PlantUML with examples showing Kubernetes services, Sequence diagrams, and AWS network diagrams.

Hi Alex, thanks for pointing out that very interesting tools. But I'm wondering what tools you are using to create animations in videos in ByteByteGo YouTube channel?

Thanks in advance.

Great writeup! I am developing a solution of my own, scratching my own itch. A simple api to create box-and-arrow types of diagrams, with animation. It is still in a very early alpha stage, and still largely undocumented: https://boxtales.io
