Branch Line

I like flowcharts. I think they're fun and they help me to think about process design. More graphics, less text, ideally.

Unfortunately, any existing app I've found to make them in doesn't compare to pen and paper for ease and speed of drawing. You usually have to micro-manage it. I want something that can make a good flowchart as fast as I can think it. I want it to automatically lay itself out, be economical with page space, and look good on screen and on paper.

So I started this little project. I don't know if I'll ever have time to finish it, but I thought if I could attract any outside interest, it might kick me into working on it more.

The source is free to look at, but I'm retaining copyright until I figure out what I want to do with it, or someone convinces me it's better for the world if I just give it away.
