This Plug-in enables you to export a list of ER Entities in a project into HTML files with one click. Astah Professional already has a feature to export model information to HTML, but it does not include ER models. This Plug-in makes it available.

How to Install

  1. Download the EREntityToHTML-x.x.x.zip file from here.
  2. Unzip the file, you will find 3 files (EREntityToHTML-x.x.x.jar, index.css and entity.css) inside.
  3. Run Astah and go to [Help] – [Plugin List] menu and click [Install] button.
  4. Select the EREntityToHTML-x.x.x.jar file and restart Astah.
  5. Now you should find a new menu [Px3Tool] – [EREntityToHTML] under [Tool] menu – this means the plug-in has been installed successfully!
