Test driving PlantUML in Atom.io

Overview

Using PlantUML to model UI events with Atom.io

I’m using a node module from Neil Crawford to ease the creation of software diagrams using Plant UML, Neil blogged about it on tech.findmypast.com where he covered set-up in Atom.io so I’ll not repeat that here.

The bonus PlantUML brings is the speed and clarity with which concepts can be created; text based image authoring really encourages iterating and boosts creativity as we search for meaning.

PlantUML is easy to learn and I’ve enjoyed creating the following diagrams.
