This package offers a simple way to invoke the plantuml rendering action straight from the editor. It uses the plantuml.jar which is embedded as part of the package and therefore requires that java be installed locally.
To use: select a file that contains source code for a plantuml diagram in Atom and select "Render diagram" from the Package menu or use the control-option-o shortcut. The script will generate a png file for the diagram (using the same file name) and place it in the same folder as the source file.
Warning: on a Mac you will need to install graphviz separately if you want to render certain types of diagrams. To do so follow the instructions at https://plantuml.com/graphviz-dot, and restart Atom after the installation is complete.
Good catch. Let us know what about this package looks wrong to you, and we'll investigate right away.
