Installation and compilation

The project uses sbt for compilation.

Once you have installed sbt, you can generate an executable, running:

sbt universal:packageBin

It will generate an executable zip file in folder:


Once you have obtained the binary, you can uncompress in a folder and run it.


If you created a binary as described in previous section, you can invoke it as umlShaclex

It is also possible to run it using sbt as: sbt run <args>.

The library can be used programmmatically or from the command line. Examples:

-Convert a ShEx schema file to SVG

umlShaclex --schema examples/shex/simple.shex --schemaFormat ShExC -o simple.svg -f svg

-Convert a ShEx schema file to UML (using PlantUML format)

umlShaclex --schema examples/shex/simple.shex --schemaFormat ShExC -o simple.uml -f uml
