Hi,

Please add MindMap Diagram Support too :) .

Something compact like FreePlane https://sourceforge.net/projects/freeplane/ is producing: http://freeplane.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/File:FreeplaneWiki.jpg would be very useful.

Thanks in advance.

Please can we stop adding pointless "+1" comments here that spam all people who are watching this issue?

Add a +1 emoji to the topmost comment instead to express your support. This also prevents "information fragmentation" among comments and emoji reactions.

Ok, since this is very popular, we have created a page here http://wiki.plantuml.net/site/mindmap
On this page, we expect people to propose a simple syntax and some images.
Once the design will be fixed, we will see how implement it.

As a first step, i would like to have a very simple syntax (more options could be added later), something like this :

* root node
	* some first level node
		* second level node
		* another second level node
	* another first level node

That would generate something like this :

Thanks for the first syntax proposal.

Instead of introducing a new syntax (at least I do think this is not some common markup language syntax), I'd suggest to use any given syntax. I personally do have preference for Org mode syntax.

With this, your example would look like:

* root node
** some first level node
**** second level node
**** another second level node
** another first level node

The advantage of Org mode would also be that there is the possibility to add links between the nodes and a ton of cool stuff later on, if necessary: https://orgmode.org/worg/dev/org-syntax.html

My syntax proposition is compatible with Markdown nested lists

I don't know the Org Mode syntax, yet ; but it seems simple too =)

I'm really impatient to have this feature

Ok, thanks for all your suggestions.
This is more an alpha version, but with last beta http://beta.plantuml.net/plantuml.jar you can have

@startmindmap
* root node
** some first level node
*** second level node
*** another second level node
** another first level node
@endmindmap

The drawing is far from perfect (no link, only basic layout...) but we are working hard on it.
After all this time, we just want to let you know that we have started something !

We have added links drawing in last beta http://beta.plantuml.net/plantuml.jar
There are still some pixels error, we will fix them in the incoming days.
We have updated http://wiki.plantuml.net/site/mindmap page with some other syntaxes that are all working with current beta. The idea is to let people play with different syntaxes to let new ideas emerge...
You can post your suggestions either in this post or in the wiki.

Same problème as @swmatisa, the png is a bit cropped

The SVG seems good

I wrote a ~~ugly~~ _simple_ Python 3 script to help me generate some cases
#!/usr/bin/env python3
import sys

def deep(width, depth, previous_level_star='*', previous_level_label=''):
    if depth < 0:
        return

    for index in range(1, width + 1):
        level_star = previous_level_star + '*'
        level_label = previous_level_label + str(index)

        print('%s %s' % (level_star, level_label))

        deep(width, depth - 1, level_star, level_label)


def generate_mindmap(width, depth):
    print('@startmindmap')
    print('* root')
    deep(width, depth)
    print('@endmindmap')


try:
    width = int(sys.argv[1])
    depth = int(sys.argv[2])

    generate_mindmap(width, depth)
except (ValueError, IndexError):
    print('USAGE: %s WIDTH DEPTH' % sys.argv[0])

Here is all my tests, i hope that can help you

Thanks for the news. I do some tests:

  • Mindmap on both side of root is very nice
  • Sprite and http link in nodes: OK
  • newpage: not implemented but would be nice

Different syntaxes:

  • *<: nice, but only the first level need the direction. If we change the first level all (error42L if not coherent).
  • OrgMode: very simple and can be extended
  • Markdown: simple and can be extended

Proposal:
Add [] or{} to OrgMode and markdown syntax to:

  • Add direction like *< syntax
  • Add the possibility to put a text on the link
  • Add the possibility to give an arrow
  • Add the possibility to give an alias to a node (for future use like a "free" link between nodes)
  • Add other params
    Ex :
    ** [Direction="left", Arrow=".>", Alias="theAlias", FontSize="33"] node text

Conclusion:

  • Syntax OrgMode(or Markdown) with param[] or {} prefered to *<
  • Thanks for your last beta features

We've just published the first official release with mindmap support.
The doc is really minimal http://plantuml.com/en/mindmap-diagram
You can contribute here http://wiki.plantuml.net/site/mindmap-diagram

The syntax is not stable yet, we are going to work on @swmatisa suggestion.
We are also going to implement Work Breakdown Structure diagram (see http://forum.plantuml.net/9060/wbs-diagrams )
Somehow, there are connection between Mindmap diagram and WBS diagram...

*<: nice, but only the first level need the direction. If we change the first level all (error42L if not coherent).

I agree with @swmatisa

Currently we can write this :

@startmindmap "tmp/current"
* middle
	*< middle left
		*<< left
	*> middle right
		*>> right
@endmindmap

Which looks like this :

current

I would like to have something like this (not sure how it could evolve) :

@startmindmap "tmp/wanted"
* middle
	*< middle left
		* left
	*> middle right
		* right
@endmindmap

currently, that give an error42L

In last beta http://beta.plantuml.net/plantuml.jar we have removed support for "number" and bracket "<" ">".
It was indeed too cryptic. Do you agree ? The trade-off between compacity and readability is not easy to find.

To choose between left and right you can now have:

@startmindmap
* count
** 100
*** 101
*** 102
** 200

left side

** A
*** AA
*** AB
** B
@endmindmap

Note that you can also use right side to update the right side.
Actually any sentence containing left/right will do the job. In the final version, we'd like to have a unique sentence. But we are out of inspiration here so your ideas are welcome :-)

Comments: using split doesn't mean sub-levels are granted, it would be mostly used to set up branch (or box) direction.

The trade-off between compacity and readability is not easy to find.

I will always prefer readability to compacity.

Currently, octets are cheaper than my salary, so the time I spend reading and understanding the code is more expensive than the cost of using more octets.

So I prefer, by far, the readability

How about org-mode syntax but using a positioning (left or right) indicator at the end of line?

@startmindmap "OrgMode"
* Linux
** NixOS -R
** Debian -L
*** Ubuntu
@endmindmap

Perhaps one could use a level indicator 1, 2, ..., n that would declare the order like this:

@startmindmap "OrgMode"
* Linux
** NixOS -R
** Debian -2L
** Ubuntu -1L
@endmindmap

in order to make "Ubuntu" show above "Debian" without manual rearrangement of the text.

@startmindmap

BackgroundColor<< RedType >> Red

* Pill
**[#blue] Blue part
**<< RedType >> Red part

@endmindmap

Either [#blue] or BackgroundColor<< RedType >> Red with << RedType >> will work for me. But I haven't done much plantuml stuff, so do not know if there is better options available in other diagrams. [#blue] will work on the spot and will do the trick but it would not be best choice as it will only apply to the background, but some people can think it could be applied to other parts (text color or link color or border color. BackgroundColor<< RedType >> Red with << RedType >> will allow to add support of styling other parts in the future, so this could be the ultimate option.

So from my POV having support for skinparam in mindmaps will be the best thing to do, as people more or less already familiar with it. And it provides quite flexible way of styling mindmaps

The support for skinparam is partial : there are no specific setting for MindMap for color, fonts...
The idea of using << stereotype >> is good : we'll keep it for latter when skinparam will be fully supported.

Right now, we are out-of-inspiration for naming mindmap setting for skinparam, so your ideas are welcome :-)

sometimes i have node in wich i want to write a long text
this results in really huge diagram

of course, i can explicit split with a \n new line

but it could be cool if PlantUML was able to split long lines, maybe with an option who specify the maximum width of a node

Good idea !
Independently of your request, there is an ongoing process to enhance PlantUML thought styles (see http://wiki.plantuml.net/site/style-evolution )
MindMap diagram have been selected as testing area for this new style evolution, so we have integrated your request there.
So with last beta http://beta.plantuml.net/plantuml.jar you can have for example :

@startmindmap

style mindmapDiagram && node {
    Padding 12
    Margin 3
    HorizontalAlignment center
    LineColor blue
    LineThickness 3.0
    BackgroundColor gold
    RoundCorner 40
    WrapWidth 100
}

style mindmapDiagram && firstNode {
    LineStyle 8.0;3.0
    LineColor red
    BackgroundColor white
    LineThickness 1.0
    RoundCorner 0
    Shadowing 0.0
}

style mindmapDiagram && leafNode {
    LineColor gold
    RoundCorner 0
    Padding 3
}

style mindmapDiagram && arrow {
    LineStyle 4
    LineThickness 0.5
    LineColor green
}

I know this might be diverting from the essence of mind mapping, but is there any way a "merge" might be able to be modelled? Here is a mockup of what I mean

Guessing the syntax might be acheved something like this, seeing you removed the support for ">" brackets, which look more like merges to me... ;)

Your first example above is the only one that I think would work...

Otherwise, the merges become impossible to render.

I am suggesting that the same "rules" already in position for travelling "outward" to form new branches simply work in reverse - so the only way I can see it working is if a merge flows back to only one "node" (if that is the correct term), and that it is to the level immediately "below" the current level.

Therefore, all the other examples you gave would break this "tree in reverse" rule. The breaking of the "tree in reverse" rule would render the same problem as this, which you already account for:

@startmindmap
* 1
** 2.1
** 2.2
**** 4
@endmindmap

which yields the error

As an alternative to your second example, a similar rendition, which does not break the rules, would be like this:

@startmindmap
* 1
** 2.1
** 2.2
>*3
** 2.2.1
@endmindmap

OK, so I was trying to create a more interesting example right now, but came across another limitation. I wanted to render the following:

but I was breaking my own "tree in reverse" rule over on the merge to "3" on the right side, leaving 2.3 orphaned.

Correctly, I should do something like this:

which could be coded like this:

@startmindmap
* 1
** 2.1
** 2.2
>*3
start left
** 2.1L
** 2.2L
** 2.3L
*** 3.1L
*** 3.2L
*** 3.3L
<** 4L
@endmindmap

unless of course there were a way to explicitly state that a node could be "orphaned" in a merge.
Hmmm... this all feels like it is getting too complicated again!!!

But I like the idea of trying to merge thoughts together in a mind map...! It's the kind of thing we can all do on paper, and in our heads easily enough... like coming to a conclusion from a number of different, but related thoughts...
