List of 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, either added as a one-off or loaded every time you use 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.

For example:

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.
