Rendering Mermaid

I use Mermaid to render a lot of simple data visualization and while I can render them in Vuepress and with plugins to vs-code, it would be super nice if I could get them to work in Marked. I don't know if this is something others have tried or whether allowing an API like Mermaid's to be involved in the rendering step is a possibility but since I can see there are some capabilities to change the rendering workflow I figured I ask rather than just stay in my state of "want". :)

    If you do a search for mermaid on these forums, you'll find a few
    discussions like this one:

    The issue now is that Marked no longer does a full refresh when
    updating, so changes to the diagram are not re-rendered when the file
    changes. I'm working on adding a hook that external scripts can use to
    trigger a re-render, but it's not available yet. So if you implement
    something like a raw file include to import the script, it will function
    on first load, but will require a manual ⌘R to render again after file
