Discussion on: Diagrams as code

Interesting! The term “diagram as code” seems indeed extremely misleading: it could as well refer to the opposite, i.e. the old dream of visual programming with ultra-detailed UML diagrams and OCL annotations to replace the code (which of course never really materialised but made UML so heavy). What about “diagramming from code” ?

I think we're stuck with the term to be honest! 😀
