Introduction I started trying to work with Storm Crawler for a project and found the documentation to be a little spartan. I had figured that I was working with a general purpose crawler, but that’s not the case. Turns out, things were not quite so simple and, while Storm Crawler does work out of the box, it’s really an SDK for developing your own crawling system. The documentation is minimal, with most information being a series of blog posts on the Digital Pebble website labelled tutorial or storm-crawler.

I had originally planned to write up an introduction to StormCrawler, but found myself wanting to draw state diagrams. Hugo doesn’t seem to have Graphviz support builtin, so I started to poke around and see what else was out there. For those who want pure Graphviz, there’s viz-js. It’s a pretty straight forward implementation, although it hasn’t been updated in a while and the documentation suggests that people should take a look at DagreJS.
