PlantUML is a Java application with which one can ‘draw’ UML diagrams by programming in a scripting language called DOT. Such PlantUML script can be written in any text editor and there exist plenty text editors and IDEs that support the generation of PlantUML diagrams. This wasn’t the case for Gedit however, the text editor I like to work with. For that reason I developed a PlantUML plugin for Gedit. For more information, sources, and downloads, please the plugin’s Gitlab site.
