Introducing another option to view Astah diagrams!
My colleague and one of Astah development members, Sho Ito (@shoito) has created an “Astah Viewer” OpenSocial Gadget called “Astah Viewer Gadget”. You can view diagram images created by Astah such as UML, ERD, Mind Map, Requirement diagrams and others on a Gadget on iGoogle, infoScoop or any other services you can use Open Social gadgets with.
The original post (Japanese) is on https://github.com/shoito/astah-gadget.
With his permission, here is a step to use the Astah Viewer Gadget in English.
1. Add Astah Viewer Gadget (Adding it to iGoogle in the sample figure)
Gadget URL : http://f.air-life.net/apps/gadgets/astah/astah-gadget.xml
2. Upload your .asta files on Astah Publish (Go to http://p.astah.net/ or click the image below and then drag and drop your .asta file inside the center, it automatically uploads all the diagrams and then gives you a URL.)
3. Enter the URL you received from Astah Publish (e.g. http://p.astah.net/a/dademo) and done!
