Plantuml is a library for generating UML diagrams from a simple text markup language.
This is a simple python remote client interface to a plantuml server using the same custom encoding used by most other plantuml clients. Python was missing from the list, and while there are other plantuml python libraries, like sphinxcontrib-plantuml, they require downloading and installing the java executable and spawning a shell subprocesses.
This client defaults to the public plantuml server, but can be used against any server.
pip install git+https://github.com/SamuelMarks/python-plantuml#egg=plantuml
PS: At some point this newer version will be uploaded to PyPi, at which point you can do:
pip install plantuml
