UmlCanvas is an implementation around the HTML5 Canvas that allows
generation of UML diagrams. A Mediawiki extension is provided to allow
editors to just enter the commands required to generate the
diagrams. Two interfaces are provided: an OO Javascript API and a
textual DSL in the form of a UML profile for ADL, the Application
Definition Language.

If you want to change and contribute things, you can checkout the git 
repository locally. You'll probably need a Unix-type of environment with a lot
of common tools like make, (ub)zip, touch, wget, java,...

$ git clone git://github.com/christophevg/UmlCanvas.git

Open the index.html file from the examples/ directory and take a look around.

* Roadmap

I'm currently working on the foundations of UmlCanvas: Canvas2D, which is also
hosted on my GitHub account. Development is done in the "next" branch and if
you check it out, you'll see that a lot is changing. Once that effort is done,
I'll be updating UmlCanvas to use all of the new goodies.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
