Export ER models to HTML

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 Plug-in files by clicking the blue Download button at the top of this page.
  2. Unzip it. You will find 3 files (EREntityToHTML-x.x.x.jar, index.css and entity.css) inside.
  3. Drag the downloaded .jar file to an open instance of Astah. A pop-up will appear asking you to confirm installation choose [Yes].
  4. If the pop-up below opens, restart Astah.

    The [Plugin] menu exists in Astah version 7.2 or later. If you are using v7.1 or earlier, read this FAQ.
  5. If you see the [Px3Tool] option under [Tools], that means the installation has completed successfully!
