yEd Live

yEd Live is the browser version of the powerful yEd desktop application. No more installer is needed to quickly and effectively create high-quality diagrams. Built upon our JavaScript diagramming library yFiles the automatic layout algorithms arrange even large data sets with just the press of a button.

Create, import or share graphs on any device that operates a modern browser. Even graphs that have been generated with the yEd desktop application can now be shared with colleagues and friends without them having installed the desktop application.

More Coming Soon

yEd Live is currently available in a functionally slightly restricted free version and runs on all platforms that operate a modern browser, e.g. Windows, Unix/Linux, Mac OS X, mobile devices, and more.

A version of yEd Live without the current restrictions will be released later.
