Replace the standard text editing solutions as the tools for creating and editing programs with the flowchart creator generating and adjusting software code with visualization, multi-layered element organization and other options to simplify the process.

Flowgorithm is intended to help you write code using flowcharts. In this regard, the program can come in handy for both beginners and advanced computer programmers. Its philosophy is based on the idea that starting from an algorithm helps creating code more effectively.

The program’s interface is quite intuitive, considering the intricacies of using a programming language. It comes with various styles to customize the appearance of your flowchart. However, I really had to guess how to add new visual elements, which is done by right clicking on the corresponding arrow. These elements are of various types, including input, output, variables, control and looping, and some of them require entering additional information. Besides, you can create customized functions, which are organized using the Function Manager.

Flowgorithm allows executing code and convert it between programming languages. It is also very convenient that the program lets you watch selected variables. Various languages, such as C#, C++, Delphi, Java, JavaScript, Perl, Python and Visual Basic.NET are supported. Once you have created your diagram, it is possible to export it as an image file (PNG) and scalable vector graphics (SVG and EMF).

All in all, Flowgorithm is quite a useful tool in the hands of a programmer, mostly beginners, who benefit from practically visualizing the code. The product is completely free of charge.
