Zim

Zim is a graphical text editor used to maintain a collection of wiki pages on your local machine.

http://zim-wiki.org

Zim can be extended with plugins. The Ditaa plugin lets you work with GraphViz diagrams. This PlantUML plugin is a simple adaptation of the Ditaa plugin.

Install

A bit of a hack:

  • Download plantuml.jar from http://sourceforge.net/projects/plantuml/files/plantuml.jar/download

  • Put it somewhere in your path and make it executable

  • Fork or download this repo.

  • Put plantuml somewhere in your path and make it executable.

  • Put my-style.plantuml in the same directory, and adapt as you like for your default style settings.

  • Copy or symlink the Zim plugin:

Ubuntu 16.04:

  • Make the local directory for plugins (if needed) mkdir $HOME/.local/share/zim/plugins/
  • Copy the plugin to the directory you just created. cp zim-plugin/plantumleditor.py $HOME/.local/share/zim/plugins/

Ubuntu 13.10:

  • Check which Python version Zim uses (on Ubuntu 13.10 it uses version 2.7, with a system-wide directory for plugins /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/zim/plugins)
  • Make the local directory for plugins (if needed) mkdir $HOME/.local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/zim/plugins
  • Copy the plugin to the directory you just created. cp zim-plugin/plantumleditor.py $HOME/.local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/zim/plugins
  • Close all Zim instances, and restart Zim. Under menu Edit > Preferences, you should be able to enable the plugin now.
