Ability to add diagrams (diagram editor)

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.

Some things are better drawn than explained. For example networking topology. A way to make diagrams directly in anytype would help for such things.

Describe the solution you’d like

I know that [draw.io ](https://www.diagrams.net/) can be integrated in applications. Used it in Bookstack for a longer time.

Would be nice to create and edit a diagram from anytype or start the draw.io app from anytype and somehow directly import the new or changed diagram. Thats nearly how it works in [Bookstack](https://www.bookstackapp.com/).

Additional context

Of course it wouldnt be good way to import the whole draw.io app into anytype or something similiar and not anybody would need it. So maybe make it optional or maybe in the future, if plugins or optional packages become a thing in anytype.

Another application similar to draw.io is [coggle.it](https://coggle.it/). However, I am unsure if it can be integrated with anytype or not. The developer team may look into this.

Mermaid support would be extremely helpful and would fit with the markdown model of AnyType https://mermaid-js.github.io/mermaid/#/

This may be a duplicate but I made this https://community.anytype.io/d/725-mermaid-graph-support to better track specifically Mermaid support. Both are of interest imo, but this one seems focused on more of a package integration with existing tools.

Would be great to have an integrated tool similar to Monodraw, to create diagrams, mindmaps, etc. inline with text, which could be easily exported to markdown.

Basic shapes:

  • ellipse
  • rectangle
  • line

Unlike ASCII Flow shapes in Monodraw are groups of chars that can be moved together on the canvas.
