Subject: Diagramly workflow charts in DW
Hi,

it would be great to integrate Diagramly workflow charts in DW. www.diagram.ly

Diagramly is a free online diagram drawing web application that enables to you to quickly draw node/edge graphs and to distribute the result.

Any idea how to do this?

Some more info: http://www.doeswhat.com/2011/04/11/interview-with-david-be…

Draw it there and save it in the Wiki?

In which way should it be integrated?

As I understood, I have to save the flowchart as a XML file locally which is contrary to the online approach of DW.
Save as jpg file could be the way to bring the flowchart in the wiki.
Unnecessary steps and may be always looking for the locally saved xml file.

A way of integration could be to have the xml file automatically saved in the data/media path, start the editing session directly from DW and present the drawing through the plugin.

{{dreamly>....abc}}
for creating and editing the "abc" flowchart in www.diagram.ly and presenting it as an jpg file.

Sorry, if this is an silly idea.

New plugins are always a good idea :)

Do you see any free sourcecode which could be used?

The use of the online diagram and flowchart editor www.diagram.ly is free and without any registration.

What I hope is, that anyone knows how to use this webservice from DW.

I don't know if there is any webapi or something else.

I put a question on their Q&A side. http://forum.jgraph.com/questions/2654/intergration-of-dia…

Any new ideas how to use draw.io (formerly diagram.ly) in DW?

I took a look at https://www.dokuwiki.org/plugin:jdraw, but the used java applet has less functionality as the online diagram editor of draw.io.

It would be nice to integrate it similar to jdraw: {{jdraw.io>mynamespace:mydiagram}}

as far as i understand

the original jdraw of which there is a plugin here, is a java applet
(under BSD / http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JGraph / original mxGraph spec)

java jgraph went through a few revisions latest v6 and is now called jgraphx (reversioned to v2)
https://github.com/jgraph/jgraphx and still under bsd

the later started javascript version seems to be propriatary; draw.io / jgraph.com
to integrate draw.io directly would possibly breach its license
the +/- public source offers insight but is a bit aged https://github.com/wtayyeb/draw.io
(the graphics generation uses a webservice - php, jsp or .net)

the current jgraph/mxgraph/draw.io sources are in a private repository
some docu is visible
http://jgraph.github.io/mxgraph/
the examples give some insight
http://jgraph.github.io/mxgraph/javascript/index.html

so one route might be to use jgraphx or draw.io to create the mxgraph xml
and use the xml in dokuwiki and let it render via a webservice (draw.io) or mxclient.js

with the above info i pulled/ripped the webapp (only the image,pdf generation is done via draw.io webservice).
I only found the jsp image-gen code.
i saw some URL parameters which would help integration (html sorce draw.io website)
  • - url=url: Opens diagram from URL (URL should be encoded)
  • - export=URL for export: For developers only
  • - gapi=0: Do not load Google APIs
additionally a .js plugin system has been just recently introduced which would make even further adoption possible


i think an open javascript library possibly with editor would be great
(there are some plugins here already which use external renderers binary->image / java / flash / webservice)

a listing of possible js/jquery graph tools

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7034/graph-visualizatio…

or chart

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/119969/javascript-chart…

from what i saw i would look into a d3.js viewer plugin
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12025374/learning-d3-js…

(or possibly JointJS, Draw2D, JavaScript InfoVis Toolkit, Diagramo)
