classdiagram-ts is a VSCode extension to create UML class diagram based on typescript source files.
I wrote it to help myself and people who have similar needs. I started this hobby project when I worked in my previous job and often needed to include class diagram in documents. Now I use it more for refactoring my code. This extension is free and provided as-is. All the code analysis happens locally (no internet use). It's a personal close source project, no public repo.
Spread the word if you find this extension useful!
Create UML class diagram for a folder or file, display class information: type (class, abstract class or interface), name, memebers (property and method), and the relationships between classes.
Open correspondent code when a class or class memebers in diagram is clicked.
Diagram is in sync with code, reflects code change immediately.
Code refactoring. "Tools/Refactor" sorts class memebers and adds 'private' modifier based on dependency analysis.
Select 'Show Diagram' in context menu (right click on a folder or ts file)
or, with an open file, click the 'Show Diagram' button on the right of the tab bar
Use "Tools/Export" to save a diagram as an image file
Use "Filter" to filter classes included in diagram
Layout is persisted for folder/class. Adjustment to diagram layout will not be lost as long as you are using the same VsCode/machine.
Class members are clickable, try it!
improve toolbar desgin
improve async return type
display a legend
better snapping (maybe a checkbox?)
function to save diagram as a file which can be re-opened and shared (adds complexity, needs more thinking, maybe only save/load layout to avoid confusion)
fix issue: when dependency lines are hidden the outlines still remain
rename the 'optimize' to 'privatize' and add better explanation, move it under a new 'refactor' menu
