Command line interface
orthogram module is designed to be used from the command
line. To generate a drawing of a diagram defined in a Diagram definition file named
diagram.yaml in your current directory,
enter the following command:
$ python -m orthogram diagram.yaml
This will create a
diagram.png image file in the same directory.
If you wish to create a file with a different name or in a different
directory, use the
-o switch like this:
$ python -m orthogram diagram.yaml -o images/something.png
The character encoding of the definition file must be UTF-8.
