IntelliJ IDEA plugins development : Diagrams

Jan 22, 2014
Category: IntelliJ IDEA

Diagrams are only available in Ultimate version of IntelliJ IDEA and Diagram Support is implemented using a commercial library called yFiles. This library has a bit complicated API and if you use yFiles it’s difficult to make something really simple in a short period of time. That’s why I made a diagram framework on top of yFiles. We (IntelliJ team) are using this framework inside Ultimate project and I can’t provide some real code examples. Sorry!

However, I’ve made a very simple plugin that shows how to deal with the diagram framework. You can find source code and java docs of the diagram framework API on GitHub https://github.com/bulenkov/IntelliJIdeaDiagramDemo

Don’t forget to setup Plugin SDK properly before you start and read instructions in README.md
