Web Sequence Diagrams

It seems that more and more people are creating their own sequence diagramming solutions due to the lack of this capability in open source offerings. It isn't that the open source tools don't support the notion of sequence diagrams, its that they are difficult to use. Especially if you want a quick sketch.

Web sequence diagrams has a very innovative idea that blends the use case and sequence diagram quite transparently. You enter a scenario using plain text, and click the draw button. There is your sequence, from text to a visual concept just like that. Try it out, it is very easy to use.

There is also PDF support as well as API examples in a variety of languages. Including Python!
