Plantuml package for R

Rainer Krug-3

I hope I can use this R mailing list for this but it seems appropriate.

I started writing a small package which enables me to create plantuml graphs from within R. It is working and available on GitHub at

It is at the moment very rudimentary and can either display the generated graph in an R graphic device or save them in a file, but it works nicely (and it takes care of the installation and download of plantuml.jar!).

I am looking for feedback and ideas in which direction this can move. Ideas are for example conversion of R types (lists, data.frames, …) into graphs.

Please try it out and file suggestions, comments, bug reports on the GitHub issues tracker at

or if you have more general questions or suggestions, please discuss them here.
