yEd is a powerful graph editor, written in Java, that can be used to generate diagrams. Diagrams can be created manually, or be imported from external data for analysis. An automatic layout algorithm arranges the data sets if needed.


Install yedAUR, which is available in the AUR. It requires an installed Java runtime environment, such as jre7-openjdk or jreAUR.

Once installed, yEd can be run using the yed command.
