Automatic layout can be a crucial support feature for complex diagramming tools. Adding suitable layout algorithms to diagramming tools is a complex task and meta-tools should incorporate these for reuse. We present MaramaALM, a generalised set of automatic layout mechanisms. This has been incorporated in the Eclipse-based Marama meta-toolset to support automatic layout in Marama diagrams. It provides an easy-to-use mechanism for tool developers to add such layouts to their generated tools. We… CONTINUE READING
