GitHub Support

This new release of draw.io supports GitHub, using OAuth, which means that draw.io never will see your GitHub password.

Diagrams can be opened from, saved, and exported to your repositories. Note that there is a 1MB file size limit on files stored in GitHub.


Step 1: Open draw.io

To use draw.io with GitHub, go to the following link: https://www.draw.io/?mode=github

You can either create a new diagram, or open an existing diagram. For this example, we’ll create a new diagram.
