Data Flow Diagramming shapes for Dia

Data Flow Diagramming is a simple diagramming technique used to gain an understanding of how data flows in an application or system. DFD diagrams are especially helpful when conducting threat modeling.

This project extends the free and open source Dia diagramming tool with a new Sheet for doing DFD diagramming:

Example of how the shapes look in Dia


Installation on Linux is pretty straight-forward:

  1. Check out the repository with git clone https://github.com/michenriksen/dia-dfd.git
  2. Make symbolic links to the diagram shapes with ln -s /path/to/dia-dfd/shapes/* ~/.dia/shapes/
  3. Make symbolic link to the diagram sheet with ln -s /path/to/dia-dfd/sheets/dfd.sheet ~/.dia/sheets/
  4. Restart Dia if it's already open

You should now have a new Sheet called DFD, ready to use.

Happy diagramming!
