List of draw.io plugins
Plugins should be used as-is, as unsupported examples for developers.
There are a number of built-in plugins that can be added to draw.io, either added as a one-off or loaded every time you use draw.io with that browser.
To load a plugin, use the
p=xxxx URL parameter, separating multiple plugin IDs with a semicolon. This does not permanently load the plugin, so the next time you create a diagram it won’t be available.
To permanently add plugins, select a plugin from the list of built-in plugins via the Add Plugin dialog, click OK and then Apply to save your changes. Make sure you reload the editor in your browser tab after you permanently add or remove a plugin.
Note: Plugins are not part of the core functionality of draw.io, they are intended as examples for developers to create additional functionality.
