Plantuml Timeline

Mar 10, 2019 The PlantUML script can be published and made available for collaboration. The problem however it that the PlantUML script used to generate the diagrams are discrete declarations of behaviour. Validation and alignment against the Domain and or Enterprise landscape would typically be manual and the likely outcome would be model divergence.

Our sprints last 2 weeks and I'd like to colorize and name the timeline accordingly. Something in the spirit of: Project starts on the 10th of May of 2018. Timeline Sprint 1 lasts 10 days and starts on the 10th of May of 2018. Then timeline Sprint 2 for 10 days. The timeline Sprint 3 for 10 days.

Your are a software engineer who love code? Then maybe you also love with diagrams (I said maybe!). There is lot of diagrams and we need it to capture requirement, draft code base, network topology, timeline and more. So diagram is important.

This blog is built using Jekyll and I am looking for some solution to allow me to draw diagram if needed with combination of markdown syntax, this should be possible.

I prefer to use PlantUML compare to others tools that available. It will convert my plain text to diagram. Thus plain text is useful for revision. PlantUML support lots of diagram such as sequence diagram,use case diagram, class diagram, activity diagram, component diagram, state diagram, object diagram, deployment diagram, timing diagram, gantt chart and many more. there is existed few plugins on rubygems but this plugin need a little touch-up.

I fork 'jekyll-remote-plantuml' and change a litle bits

Vivaldi g dur. So because I know storing generated image into repo will make that repo grow bigger in term of size so I decide to format the image into base64 each time building jekyll website and cache downloaded image during CI/CD

It quite silly, I do some code modification to accomplish my objective. So thank you original developer of jekyll-remote-plantuml gem for awesome work.

What and why?

My plugins named as jekyll-plantuml-base64 do everything same as what jekyll-remote-plantuml do but the image will be converted into base64.

Why base64? Because I don’t need to store this image on my repository and there is a trick to cached this image during CI/CD to speed up the built process next time.
