Js Sequence Diagram

https://github.com/bramp/js-sequence-diagrams (called without the s, ie js-sequence-diagram)

It's very slow (may also due to the dependencies)

const script = document.querySelector(".diagram").textContent;
const options = {theme: 'simple'};
const diagram = Diagram.parse(script);
const targetId = "diagram";
diagram.drawSVG(targetId, options);
Alice->Bob: Hello Bob, how are you?
Note right of Bob: Bob thinks
Bob-->Alice: I am good thanks!
