This is a list of publicly available Tutorials for using Mermaid.JS and is intended as a basic introduction for the use of the Live Editor for generating diagrams, and deploying Mermaid.JS through HTML.

Note that these tutorials might display an older interface, but the usage of the live-editor will largely be the same.

For most purposes, you can use the Live Editor, to quickly and easily render a diagram.

The definitions that can be generated the Live-Editor are also backwards-compatible as of version 8.7.0.

Jupyter Integration with mermaid-js

Here's an example of Python integration with mermaid-js which uses the service, that displays the graph in a Jupyter notebook.

import base64
from IPython.display import Image, display
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

def mm(graph):
    graphbytes = graph.encode("utf8")
    base64_bytes = base64.b64encode(graphbytes)
    base64_string = base64_bytes.decode("ascii")
    display(Image(url="" + base64_string))

graph LR;
    A--> B & C & D;
    B--> A & E;
    C--> A & E;
    D--> A & E;
    E--> B & C & D;
