NAME

      ditaa - convert ASCII diagrams into proper bitmap graphics

SYNOPSIS

      ditaa [options] input [output]

DESCRIPTION

      This manual page documents briefly the ditaa command.
      DiTAA  is  a small command-line utility that can convert diagrams drawn using ASCII art
      ("drawings" that contain characters that resemble lines, like | / and -),  into  proper
      bitmap graphics.
      DiTAA  also uses special markup syntax to increase the possibilities of shapes and sym‐
      bols that can be rendered.

OPTIONS

      --help Show summary of options.
      -v, --verbose
             Makes ditaa more verbose.
      -A, --no-antialias
             Turns anti-aliasing off.
      -d, --debug
             Renders the debug grid over the resulting image.
      -E, --no-separation
             Prevents the separation of common edges of shapes.
      -e ENCODING, --encoding ENCODING
             The encoding of the input file.
      -h, --html
In this case the input is an HTML file. The contents of the
 tags are rendered as diagrams and saved in the images directory and a new
              HTML file is produced with the appropriate <img> tags.

       -o, --overwrite
              If the filename of the destination image already exists, an alternative name  is
              chosen.   If  the  overwrite option is selected, the image file is instead over‐
              writen.

       -r, --round-corners
              Causes all corners to be rendered as round corners.

       -s SCALE, --scale SCALE
              A natural number that determines the size of the rendered image. The  units  are
              fractions of the default size (2.5 renders 1.5 times bigger than the default).

       -S, --no-shadows
              Turns off the drop-shadow effect.

       -t TABS, --tabs TABS
              Tabs  are  normally  interpreted  as  8 spaces but it is possible to change that
              using this option. It is not advisable to use tabs in your diagrams.
