How to inflate the deflated plantuml code sent to a plantuml server?

At this link (http://plantuml.sourceforge.net/codejavascript.html) there is a method using Javascipt to deflate plantuml text into a compressed string of characters safe to use in a URL...for sending to a plantuml server. It appears to use a custom encode64() method, instead of the method used by the source code that this was derived from (https://github.com/johan/js-deflate/).

This code works great, of course, to deflate, but I am looking to go the other direction and convert the compressed text back into the original uncompressed plantuml text. Can someone please let me know what I would need to do this? I have spent a few hours trying to figure it out and am not getting anywhere.

Many thanks in advance!!!!

Wow, me too! I'm trying some Google Docs integration and really need this to work in JavaScript.

To be sure I understand you.

You want to know how to uncompress an encoded PlantUML diagram using javascript ?

I know the code exists in java but in javascript, I don't know.

The link no longer works. Does anyone have the javascript for inflating PlantUML URL's?

That link only explains the compression. Does anyone have the Javascript for the decompression? Thank you!
