I want to 'type' the flowchart data in a standard editor, specifying connections etc.

Then, when finished, the program generates a flowchart.

It is possible you saw Dia.

Anyway here is a list of free programs for flowchart design, maybe it's among these. https://opensource.com/article/18/8/flowchart-diagramming-linux


I think the best possible free tool available is Draw.io. It will generate the drawings in a XML format if you like and there is heavy portability embedded to the tool.
