    Is there a way (or a convenient way, or a standard way) of writing string diagrams on the nLab? In particular I could use something for just usual symmetric monoidal categories.

    You can use Tikz, I would have thought that is the best way these days. Alternatively, if there is some LaTeX package that you’re missing, let me know, and I can add it.

    Paolo, see HowTo TikZ

    I have done plenty of string diagrams lately (for instance at all horizontal weight systems are partitioned Lie algebra weight systems) but I compiled them all locally and then just uploaded a jpg-shot of them. Better would of course be to include the TikZ-source as in the HowTo.
