Is there a list of supported mermaid diagram types anywhere?

Is there a list of supported Mermaid diagram types anywhere? I have looked for this in the help and online in other places but can’t find one.

I have been looking for a way to archive personal timeline information and it would be great to be able to display this in Obsidian, but when I use the mermaid code blocks and use ‘timeline’ I get;

Error parsing Mermaid diagram!

No diagram type detected for text: timeline

I’ve used other mermaid diagram types just fine (flowchart, sequence).

If are interested in themes with mermaid support, check out Dune :wink:

AFAIK at least the timeline and mindmap diagram types are as of today not included in Obsidian.

I also would like Mermaid to be updated to support the quadrant charts, AND/OR the Obsidian help docs to be clear about which charts are supported. It is confusing that the documentation says that mermaid charts are all supported, but they are not.

Thank you for all the work on such a great tool!

As of today, the obsidian insider build has been upgraded to mermaid v10 (I believe 10.2.4) which should support all the new diagrams


Thanks @mr_abomination that’s really helpful.
