HyUml apps for yUML

Woa... it has been a busy time and my posting force has really dropped. There are a lot of news in the jgrasstools, uDig and open source world to tell about, but for now I will just announce this (I do not need my brain to write about certain things).

I recently got in need to be able to do some design on the road on an android tablet. So I started to search in the market and found some apps. They all were posing as gui to the really nice yUML project.
I found that an amazing idea, but the available tools didn't have certain features I felt were necessary:

* to have an editor and uml view aside of each other
* be able to easily load and save files and dump the image to disk
* be on both android and desktop

That is why I started HyUml:

It is already very usable and it is coded in really few time and with no resources, but it serves the purpose and I am having a good time with it. It is obviously open sourced, so maybe you can also make use of it.

Some snaps:

RCP Version:

Well, maybe I should add that in the lower left panel you get the html img tag text that you can put inside a wiki to have the diagram generated there. This is nifty :)

Android version:

While the android version is in the market, the rcp version has to be built as an eclipse application. For thos interested in the source code of the two projects, they are both on bitbucket on the hyuml repository.

Dear Moovida, very cool: where is it ? Can we dowload it from somewhere ? Thanks, riccardo

moovida said...

Thanks Ric. The android version is in the market already.

The RCP is a bit trickier, since if I create downloads, they have to be for all OS and I don't have time to do that right now. So for the desktop version I supply only the eclipse plugin... guess you wanted it for macosx, right?

Right ;-). But for the moment I can manage to get it as an Eclipse plugin ... Where can I search it ?

Outch, now I get it! I didn't link to the project page... will do it in a second.

Ok, updated the post and added the link:

Awesome :) Love to see people building stuff around yUML. Will add this to the community page, happy coding :)

moovida said...

Tobin, thank you so much! The small amount of work I have done here would be really nothing without your awesome yUML. Thanks!

Fantastic - could you maybe elaborate on the HyUml website how to instal it as an Eclipse plugin? I do not see the plugin url that would work anywhere. My eclipse (on OSX) did not pick properly (I know this is just the project's repo, but I tried ;)).

Hi Martin, you are right. There is no update site for this I am afraid...

But I added an installation part to the docs:!installation
