I was wondering what would be a good approach to reverse engineer code into a StarUML class diagram. For example, I could parse a GraphQL schema into an AST (Abstract Syntax Tree). How would I then create a model that I could show as a class diagram in StarUML?

Hello,

You can create an extension that support reverse engineering. You can find some open source example extensions that support reverse engineering for some languages from here: https://github.com/staruml and check the docs (https://docs.staruml.io/developing-extensions/getting-started)

Thank you,

Hello,

I have a followup question about reverse engineering. Is it possible to create elements in a model using the CLI (similar to how we can do it in an extension). That way I can simply write a command line application to reverse engineer code into a StarUML model. Seems simpler than writing a whole extension.

Thanks.

You can't create elements with the CLI.

Thank you for the information. Time to learn extensions :-)
