is a UML diagramming tool.UML
diagrams are used in professional software development. The diagrams allow developers to see the big picture without all the distracting details in source code or before a single line of code has been written.Fpelletier
added SIM to the database about an year ago but didn't create a thread in the forums. Now, one day after the release of SIM 5.00, I decided to finally create a thread for it.
In spring 2011, I was looking for a portable UML tool with GNU/Linux support. I only found BOUML
and SIM, and BOUML is discontinued
. SIM requires .NET 3.5
, but it's not a problem for me.
Besides fulfilling my basic requirements, SIM is also able to create some non-UML diagrams including UI mockups. In addition, it's quite lightweight: some tools (especially well know ones like astah*) require a couple hundred megabytes of disk space, while SIM only takes about eight (v5) or five (v4) megabytes.
