Add custom label for bracket syntax

0 votes

First thanks for your work !

I would like to know if it is possible to add custom label with the bracket syntax in Deployment diagram.

I know that this type of diagram seems to be under developpment, but I would like to know if it is possible to handle this syntax :

For Class diagram :


class foo as "bar"
class bar as "foo" {
 String data


This syntax works fine, but not for Deployment diagram, for artifact, node, storage, etc :


node node_foo as "foo"
node node_bar as "node_foo" {
 artifact node_bar_ar1 as "ar1"


The first line is well parsed, but not the second one, resulting in syntax error.

Thanks for the suggestion...

In last beta https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/13064071/plantuml.jar

You can use [ and ] for using some custom label.

For example, you can have:

node bar {
 artifact foo1 [
 node node2 [

Is this what you are looking for ?

This has not been highly tested, so feed back welcome!
