# 🧜‍♀️ Mermaid

Mermaid is a diagramming and charting tool that can be defined inside Markdown code blocks.

# Component syntax

With a similar syntax to code blocks, creating a Mermaid diagram requires a ``` code fence with the inclusion of the mermaid specifier.

Sample Mermaid diagram
```mermaid
graph LR
    A[Hard edge] -->|Link text| B(Round edge)
    B --> C{Decision}
    C -->|One| D[Result one]
    C -->|Two| E[Result two]
```
graph LR
    A[Hard edge] -->|Link text| B(Round edge)
    B --> C{Decision}
    C -->|One| D[Result one]
    C -->|Two| E[Result two]

# Directives

Mermaid directives can be configured using the recommended %%{init: { } }%% syntax as the first line just inside the ```mermaid block.

From the Mermaid docs:

Directives gives a diagram author the capability to alter the appearance of a diagram before rendering by changing the applied configuration.

All Mermaid directives are supported by Retype.

The following sample demonstrates applying a theme to the diagram:

```mermaid
%%{init: { 'theme': 'forest' } }%%
graph LR
    A[Hard edge] -->|Link text| B(Round edge)
    B --> C{Decision}
    C -->|One| D[Result one]
    C -->|Two| E[Result two]
```
%%{init: { 'logLevel': 'debug', 'theme': 'forest' } }%%
graph LR
    A[Hard edge] -->|Link text| B(Round edge)
    B --> C{Decision}
    C -->|One| D[Result one]
    C -->|Two| E[Result two]
