This video tutorial shows how to create a flowchart diagram with yEd.
yEd is based on yFiles - the industry-leading software library for visualizing, editing and analyzing graphs.Discover more
yEd is a pure Java Swing application. It runs on all Windows, Unix/Linux, and Mac OS versions where a suitable Java Runtime Environment is available.
yEd is based on the yFiles diagramming library, which provides not only the automatic layout algorithms and analysis tools, but also the intuitive user interface that makes creating and editing diagrams so easy.
For its look and feel, yEd makes use of UI components from JIDE Software.
We hope that you find yEd to be an invaluable tool and as much fun to make diagrams as we do. Spread the word and recommend it to your friends on Facebook and Twitter!
We also invite you to blog about yEd or submit a nice review on alternativeto.net.

yEd Desktop editor is awesome! I write a lot of request for approval documents and your yEd Desktop editor is what I use for the architecture diagrams. It's really great and it is free too! I had tried a few other diagramming tools from other organizations but yours seems to fit my needs the best.David Joy, System Administrator, Canadian Navy
Wow, what a great product. I used to draw computer network drawings back in the early 2000's, and only recently I needed to draw a wiring diagram for an electrical component map. And wow, I learned your program pretty quickly, I was able to do everything I needed to do and I am just so thankful. Great program!Craig Fine, Sales Manager, Alliance Fleet
