      The PlantText tool is an online tool for quickly creating UML (Unified Modeling Language) diagrams. Unlike most tools, PlantText can build diagrams without the use of a mouse because it is based on PlantUML markup language.
      PlantText vs Gaphor opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      elQuero These two tools are designed with different purposes in mind: PlantText is for automatic online rendering of text-described schemes, useful i.e. for little schemes inside a web page. Gaphor is an editor with a lot more feature, useful for more complex projects: is WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get), handles object shared between multiple diagrams and so on.
