Introducing Offline Access

Last month, we launched new improvements to your HackMD experience: Offline Access.

How does it work? When you experience an unreliable internet connection, a message will appear indicating that you’re offline. Continue writing as you would, making sure not to close your browser or clear your cache. Once you’re back online, you’ll confirm and merge the changes made while offline. Simply check that everything is reflected as it should be, apply the changes, and you’re set!

And a special shout out to Lion, Jose, WildfootW, Zoe, and Rachel for their help with usability testing. If you have any questions or feedback on this new feature, feel free to drop that in our Discord!

Back to Basics: What is a UML diagram?

A UML diagram acts as a visual representation of systems and software. This visualization helps everything from onboarding new collaborators to giving a quick overview of structures to digging into the technical components of a new product.

Because when it comes to technical documentation, the writing can sometimes be complicated. UML diagrams visualize and simplify information in a way that’s easier to digest.

There are a ton of diagrams available depending on your need, each serving a unique purpose. Learn about different types of UML diagrams on the HackMD blog.
