Library for parsing, manipulating, and generating BridgePoint xtUML models

Project description

pyxtuml is a python library for parsing, manipulating, and generating BridgePoint xtUML models.


For people running Ubuntu, all dependencies are available via apt-get:

$ sudo apt-get install python2.7 python-ply


Install from pypi:

$ python -m pip install pyxtuml

Or fetch the source from github:

$ git clone
$ cd pyxtuml
$ python install

Optionally, you can also execute a test suite:

$ python test

Usage example

The examples folder contains a few scripts which demonstrate how pyxtuml may be used.

The following command will create an empty metamodel and populate it with some sample data:

$ python examples/ > test.sql

Copy the SQL statements saved in test.sql to your clipboard, and paste them into the BridgePoint editor with a project selected in the project explorer.

If you are on a more recent GNU/Linux system, you can also pipe the output directly to your clipboard without bouncing via disk:

$ python examples/ | xclip -selection clipboard

Reporting bugs

If you encounter problems with pyxtuml, please file a github issue. If you plan on sending pull request which affect more than a few lines of code, please file an issue before you start to work on you changes. This will allow us to discuss the solution properly before you commit time and effort.
