Draw.io to Vuejs
A faster way to build web-app by using draw.io as uml to create vue single file components
I have made a new version using node that is available here: https://github.com/FrancescoSaverioZuppichini/DrawIo2Vuejs
This python package will be no longer updated.
The most annoying part in creating a web application is to actually create the files and import them in other components. We've solved the problem by using draw.io as editor and a little python program to parse the generated UML file and create the file and directory structures.
Go to draw.io create a new file and use the UML objects in order to create your components tree. Be aware, use only the labelled as an object (the fist one).
That means that, for example, the file Home.vue will import file User.vue.
Once you have finished your application you must export it as XML not compressed
Then, to create your components, open the terminal and type
cd source/ python3 main.py <pathToXmlFile> <destination>
After that, directories and components will be created. By following our example:
\\after creating all components . ├── App.vue ├── components │ ├── Hello.vue │ ├── Home │ │ └── Home.vue │ └── Index │ ├── Index.vue │ └── User │ └── User.vue
If we take a look at Home.vue for example we can see that all components are loaded correctly
import User from './../Index/User/User.vue'
By using Vue webtools:
You can fast use the vue-cli in order to create an app and then use our program to ovveride App.vue and the components folder.
