How to write plugin for yEd?

+2 votes
I have some functions written with C++ . They are taking graph and counting some parameters for it . So I need to make graph with yEd and then run my functions with plugin or something like this. How to do it?

Thanks  in advance.

It's shocking that yEd doesn't have a plugin architecture. I made a feature request for one. We'll see how that goes :P http://yed.yworks.com/support/qa/8901/open-source-plugin-architecture

Unfortunately, yEd does not provide a plugin framework. Therefore, it is currently not possible to incorporate custom features/functions into yEd.

The best you can do is storing your graph as GraphML, then opening said GraphML in your own program and running your functions.

Does yFiles provide a plugin framework?
It would be a nice addition if yEd was able to custom plugins made with your library.
