Dokuwiki Plugin - OrgApp

Dokuwiki plugin to draw organization charts.

The plugin has been updated with the last version of the applet, there are now more options to draw more compact organization chart (e.g. by reversing the orientation of the last level of leaves).

Plugin usage

Generates charts using the applet OrgApp.


<orgapp attribute="value" attribute="value" ...>
 chart definition

Possible optional attributes:

Name Description
width Width of the chart
height Height of the chart
name Name of the applet
code Main class of the OrgApp applet
archive Archive (URL) location of the OrgApp applet
target Dafault link target
type Type of the chart definition (0=SOF), see OrgApp for more details
url Location (URL) of the organization chart definition

The chart can be defined either directly in the Wiki page or in an external file. In the first case is sufficient to include the definition within the tag orgapp, in the second case you should use the attribute url to define the URL of the definition.


The following code shows how to define an organization chart directly in the wiki page:

  <unit name="eIrOcA" >
   <unit name="eNrIcO" />
   <unit name="sImOnA" />

generates the following result:

The following code shows how to draw an organization defined in an external file and changing the default width:

<orgapp width="100%" url="/apps/orgapp/data2.sof"></orgapp>

generates the following result:


Download and install the plugin using the Plugin Manager using the following Refer to plugins on how to install plugins manually. Releases at github is always up to date.


The default values used in the generation of the organization chart can be changed from the control panel.

It is advisable, but not necessary, move the OrgApplet.jar file in the Web server directory serving static resources and change the URL in the field Archive of the administration panel.

WARNING if the applet does not load, you should control:

  • Java runtime is properly installed in the PC (version 6 or higher)
  • that Archive field contains the correct URL of the file OrgApplet.jar
  • to have disabled the nice URL dokuwiki feature. If you want to use nice URL you need to move the OrgApplet.jar file to a static resources folder outside the control of dokuwiki rewrite rules.
