Regarding IntelliJ plugin feature request https://github.com/esteinberg/plantuml4idea/issues/119
Use platuml's server (http://plantuml.com/plantuml/uml/IybCBqeio51mLwZcIbJGjLD8uge50000) is very convenient.I always edit plantuml in idea, and copy paste to plantuml's server to generate the link, then change the png to svg, then use this link in markdown.
plantuml4idea can generate the svg ,png or form link will be very useful.
I would like to ask how is the link generated?
I know I could just POST the content, and then open browser to the location returned in a header, but perhaps I could save you some bandwidth by generating the link myself...
