Organization chart plugin for Dia
The plugin allows to create organization charts from CSV (character separated files) files.
The plugin is written in Python, so a Dia version with Python support is required along with the Python csv module. Windows users can follow the "How to use Dia with Python on Windows" instructions.
Download dia_orgchart.py and place it into the Dia installation directory or the .dia/python directory. Restart Dia in order to load the plugin.
Start Dia and select "File->Open" to open your CSV file. Select the "CSV Organization Chart" as the file type. The first column should contain the box content and the second column should contain a reference (name) to the parent box. If the second column is empty, there is no parent.Your file should use ";" to separate the columns. Many spreadsheet software packages like OpenOffice or Excel are able to create CSV files.
The example below can be downloaded in CSV format: orgchart_example.csv
CEO;; Head of Development;CEO; Developer X;Head of Development; Developer Y;Head of Development;
Like Dia, the plugin is available under the terms of the GPL v2.
