03.04.18. draw.io allows to automatically create diagrams from CSV files

Many different company departments and professionals work with data that is or can be represented in a table or spreadsheet format, and often, that data is more quickly understood when converted into a diagram. If you want to see that data visually, it’s now easy to import it into draw.io. Each row represents a shape, and the columns contain the shapes’ data. You can see that not all columns are included as data in the diagram – some of these columns tell draw.io how to format the shape, or are used as identifiers for drawing connectors between the shapes. You can set the formatting for the shapes.
