Yesterday was Sunday evening when I wrote article about searching for ER-diagram modelling tool for Linux alternative to free Dia -Windows environment tool. I’m using 32 bit Lubuntu Linux distro on my nearly 15 years old studying laptop and it seems like there’s not much to do with GNOME-desktop -environment based desktop -applications when it comes to 32 bit software for ER-modelling tools.
After half an hour of using Search Engine, I found web -service draw.io what makes it possible to create own database design by Chen model and save own work to Google Drive or Dropbox or even on your computer.
I’m making comeback to the Turku University and this semester I have two database courses I’ve enrolled in and I’m gonna lay down my bets on Draw.io -web service if there’s something to do with ER-diagrams at the lessons if lecturer doesn’t give any alternative for software to use.
I had some repository problems when tried to install dia-gnome, and my primary computer is running in Windows 10 -environment due to I’m playing some quite a new computer games with my PC too on my spare time and I’ve installed Dia on this computer.
I could try run Dia Windows version on virtual machine software called wine but I’m not gonna lose my sleeptime overnights with this case.
If you are looking for online -cloud based free tool for ER-Diagram modelling (Chen-method), give a chance for draw.io.
Tool’s website is found on https://draws.io
