GitLab Flavoured Markdown: render UML diagrams by adding 'Syntax Highlightning' for PlantUML
Taken from https://github.com/gitlabhq/gitlabhq/issues/9550, but this is just what I need:
there is syntax highlightning for some languages (Ruby, Python, etc.) using
(using apostrophes for the backticks here)
to add PlantUML to the languages
for code fencing
-> with the difference that the output is not a beautified code, but a UML diagram. The PlantUML text (http://plantuml.com/PlantUML_Language_Reference_Guide.pdf) is replaced by the UML diagram's graphic.
getting the power of UML inside the markdown documents without the cost of unmaintainable inserted graphics
replacing the pygments highlightner by the PlantUML renderer in case of 'plantuml' as language

This feature would make great addition to wikipages in projects

This would be very nice if extended also to TeX math formulae and Graphviz generic graphs.

I've been searching for a way to implement this too. I was first thinking about rendering it as svg in the html renderer, but that seems to be much more complex. This looks like a much better way to do this.
Yes! Really looking forward to see this in gitlab!
