[Linux] How to add a custom command to a node menu

0 votes
After having selected a node, a right-click displays a menu with a list of stock commands, such as Go to URL or Properties...

Is it possible to add a custom command such as a bash script or any other user-defined command within that menu?

Is it possible to add a custom element within the "palette' window to be able to launch such custom commands for a group of nodes?

Is it possible to launch such custom commands through yEd API?

It is not possible to add custom commands to yEd. Moreover, yEd does not offer an API because you are not allowed to use yEd in an automated process like running a script. Please see the yEd Software License Agreement, ยง1 License Conditions.

If you are looking for a graph layout and visualization API, please take a look at the comercial yFiles library upon which yEd is built.
