Build Status

I also have included some Ruby code that plays with the .archimate file format produces by Archi to produce useful output.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'archimate'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install archimate



The example scripts are (some are planned):

command description
archimate clean ARCHIFILE Clean up unreferenced elements and relations
archimate convert ARCHIFILE Convert the incoming file to the desired type
archimate dedupe ARCHIFILE de-duplicate elements in Archi file
archimate dupes ARCHIFILE List (potential) duplicate elements in Archi file
archimate help [COMMAND] Describe available commands or one specific command
archimate lint ARCHIFILE Examine the ArchiMate file for potential problems
archimate map ARCHIFILE Produce a map of diagram links to a diagram
archimate stats ARCHIFILE Show some statistics about the model
archimate svg -o OUTPUTDIR ARCHIFILE o, --output=OUTPUT Produce semantically meaningful SVG files from an Archi file


After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake test to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to
