Work visually in GitHub

Simply insert a published Lucidchart link in GitHub, and the link will unfurl to show a preview of your document. From the preview, team members can quickly understand the basics, or they can click the link to see the Lucidchart diagram in more depth.

Increase understanding

Clarify issues or pull requests in GitHub through architecture diagrams, mockups, user flows, and other visuals. Rather than providing text-heavy documentation or asking developers to look through the code base, you can use Lucidchart to explain how your application or system functions so your team members can move on those requests faster.

Stay up to date

Static diagrams can quickly become out of date and create versioning issues in your department. By including a link to your live Lucidchart document rather than a static image, you can ensure that users always have access to the latest version of your architecture or user flow.
