Embed Gliffy diagrams in wiki pages


This plugin allows you to embed Gliffy diagrams in your Trac wiki pages. Gliffy is an online platform where you can create professional-quality flowcharts, wireframes, UML diagrams and more. The diagram is inlined on the page with an edit link that embeds the Gliffy editor.

When the editor launches, click the "Return to trac" link in the upper right corner to go back to your Trac page. The Gliffy editor will prompt you to save if you have made changes to the diagram.

This plugin requires that you have a account. For API access you may need a paid account.

I haven't tested this with Trac 0.11, so I may need assistance there to make it compatible.
