I'm pleased to announce the very first version of
hierarchical-clustering-diagrams [1].  This library builds upon Brent
Yorgey's great diagrams library to draw diagrams of dendrograms.  You
can see an example diagram at [2].

This library has already been tested with a Real World Big Data
dendrogram and has a pretty nice performance.  It generates a 20,000 x
5,000 px PNG in less than 15s on a 2 years-old Core 2 laptop.

Note that while this library depends on the hierarchical-clustering
library [3], nothing stops you from using any other method of creating
your dendrogram.  You only need to convert your dendrogram to the data
type provided by hierarchical-clustering, which should be
straightforward.  However, I'd love to hear if someone finds both
libraries useful =).

Cheers, =D
