Site update to reflect GPL policy

As a lot of people asked about if the project is open source I realized that it was not too obvious.

Now it is. We added a big info about that on the main page.

In addition we added "fork me" (call to fight :) ) near our logo.

Hope this will make things clear.

Diagramo will change to donationware

Yes, we will change to donationware.

We would like to say that we change our business model...but (un)forfortunately we did have any model up to now so it's just a change.

I like to work for Diagramo (like other that contributed) but it comes a time when we would like to see your appreciation in more than an email (usually with question of how to code).

I would like to buy a cup of tea or book with money from Diagramo.

So we will add a symbolic donation for anyone interested in more than to use the app.

Application will stay free to download but more advanced stuff (full code, documentation, etc) will be for those that donated to the project.

p.s. Those that contributed to the project with code will not have any "mere mortal" limitation

Diagramo Contributor Agreement

As I want to be able to easily integrate code from other people I shamelessly used Monty's Contributor Agreement to create a similar agreement for people that want to contribute to Diagramo core.

It is named Diagramo Contributor Agreement

The reasons for it are:
  • easy to publish under a single license
  • no one can "veto" making the code public or under a certain license
  • long time contributors will no longer be needed to "explicitly marked" donated code each time they make a patch

On the other hand I was trying to read the AGPL for the second time and was able to reach page 5 out of 11 ONLY after I ate a full chocolate and cursed all mind twisted lawyers on the planet.

Why the !@#$ did they have to make it so hard to understand?

Is what George Orwell said : "When there is a gap between one's real and one's declared aims, one turns as it were instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish squirting out ink." ?

So reading AGPL postponed indefinitely.

Diagramo's diagrams are really free

The guys from Wikipedia asked us to make all the diagrams Diagramo generates really free.

So by now all the public diagrams someone creates will be
Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0

This means that anytime you make a diagram public it will be under that license.

Diagramo 2.1 release candidate ready

I'm proud to announce that version 2.1 (release candidate) of Diagramo is ready to play with (see

The most important visible features are:

1. Support for images in SVG, PNG, GIF and JPG format

This means that is just a matter of creating a new set of images and you have a new package of figures.

2. Network diagram support

3. UML state machine diagram support

3. Real time changing in connector shape

For those interested in developing there were huge changes in the core of the application, mainly making the code cleaner and unclutter the UNDO system.

You can see resolved tasks or download it.

Please visit to test these new features and report any bug you might find.

With your help I can push this version into release.

Thanks and enjoy
