There is no free alternative to this useful software, so we tried to create it!

What it does

Makes a flowchart based on the code in a file.

How we built it

Python with svgwrite.

Challenges we ran into

Lack of sleep.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Ethan: "It does a pretty good job at parsing things" (well formed python that is)

What we learned

How much we actually love staticly typed languages.

What's next for Flowchartr

Making it for multiple languages and fixing the bugs. Using existing documentation formats like Doxygen to make less code-y and more informative flowcharts.

(note: this is a working title. When stable, it will most likely be on Github eventually)
