Why use PlantText?
1. Once you learn the basics of the syntax, you can generate UML diagrams much more quickly than with a typical drag and drop tool
2. The diagrams are based on ASCII so you can use your own software to version and perform diffs on them. You could even parse the text programmatically.
3. It allows you to focus on the relationships and complex ideas you need to capture in your design, rather than endlessly resizing and aligning rectangles.
