Lucidchart Announces New Integration with GitHub to Increase Understanding Among Teams

New Offering Allows Individuals to Include Diagrams Where They Work

Lucidchart, the visual productivity platform that drives innovation and collaboration, announced its new integration with GitHub, one of the leading software development platforms. Lucidchart is one of four launch partners for the Content Attachments API, which embeds the content behind a URL directly into a GitHub conversation to provide better context.

“We’re very excited to work with GitHub,” said Karl Sun, co-founder and CEO of Lucidchart. “Millions of engineers rely on Lucidchart, and we will continue to empower them to clearly communicate and work more efficiently by integrating with the platforms they use.”

Through the integration, users can insert a published link to a Lucidchart diagram, such as an architecture diagram, mockup, or user flow. The link will unfurl to show a preview of the visual so team members can quickly understand an issue or pull request and work more efficiently. By inserting a link to a live document rather than a static image, users can ensure that their teams always have access to the current version.
