Extend the Modeler

You can now create and add plugins to the Camunda Modeler by simply copying them into the modelers plugins directory. Plugins allow you to modify the modelers appearance and to extend its functionality.

To get you started we have created a repository with ready-to-use plugins for the modeler and templates for creating your own plugins. There is also an example plugin for you to to get started with creating Camunda Modeler plugins.

Check out the plugin documentation for all the details on how to extend the Camunda Modeler.

If you have ever modeled a bigger process you know that navigation can be hard sometimes. The new minimap helps you to navigate these big processes with ease:

Navigate with ease!

You can see which part of the process you are looking at at any time. Click, drag or zoom the minimap to navigate your process. In case you don’t need the minimap you can close it.

In BPMN and DMN modeling we have included a number of minor improvements and bug fixes.

What’s next?

In our next milestone we will focus on stability and usability improvements for the Camunda Modeler.
