I use draw.io. You can save it as an SVG and it'll remain editable when you open with the editor. Plus, it'll be easier to embed and view it with other editing tools.
Draw.io is nice but I don't like how it hosts the diagrams on your Google Drive.
You can keep the files as xml instead.

Yea that's a cool. Same with my comment with "mermaid" - I'd like something a little more point and click.
I know I'm being picky ;)
