Real-world applications

Eraser shines in scenarios where engineering teams need to collaboratively document designs, architectures, and processes. For example, when a new project kicks off, architects can use Eraser to draw up architecture diagrams that are easily shared and edited by the team. Similarly, during brainstorming sessions, teams can collectively sketch out wireframes or design documents, making sure everyone’s on the same page. For developers documenting their code or processes, Eraser’s markdown and diagram-as-code capabilities ensure that documentation is both efficient and neatly integrated with their existing workflows.
