Will GraphViz dependency be removed in the future?

asked Jul 9, 2019 in Question / help by Happy PlantUML User
Our system administrator refuses to install GraphViz for the Confluence PlantUML plugin so we are limited to Message Sequence, Activity Beta, and Timing diagrams.

I noticed that the original Activity requires GraphViz but Activity Beta does not.

Is there a plan to make the other diagrams free of the GraphViz dependency at some point?

There is a plan, and there are two solutions.

1) Using Vizjs http://plantuml.com/vizjs
This solution works fine, however I am not sure how it integrates with Confluence.
You have to go to Confluence team to know more about it

2) A port of GraphViz in Java http://plantuml.com/smetana02
This solution is possible out-of-the box, that is it will work with your current config.
Unfortunately, the port is not complete, so only some features are working.
So I don't know if it will fit your need.

Hope this helps!
