Installable with the Extension Manager


With the help of this macro you can display a Freemind mindmap inside a wiki page.


First you have to attach the mindmap to the page where the macro will be called:

The following step is to insert the new Freemind Macro. You can achieve this in 2 ways:

  • Edit the page in WYSIWYG mode and add a new Freemind Macro to the page:
  • Write the macro code in Wiki mode:
    {{freemind map="" width="1600px" height="600px"/}}


This is how the result will look like:

At this point you can browse the mindmap as you wish by simply clicking on the branches to either fold or unfold them:

Prerequisites & Installation Instructions

We recommend using the Extension Manager to install this extension (Make sure that the text "Installable with the Extension Manager" is displayed at the top right location on this page to know if this extension can be installed with the Extension Manager). Note that installing Extensions when being offline is currently not supported and you'd need to use some complex manual method.

You can also use the following manual method, which is useful if this extension cannot be installed with the Extension Manager or if you're using an old version of XWiki that doesn't have the Extension Manager:

  1. Log in the wiki with a user having Administration rights
  2. Go to the Administration page and select the Import category
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to upload the downloaded XAR
  4. Click on the uploaded XAR and follow the instructions
  5. You'll also need to install all dependent Extensions that are not already installed in your wiki

Release Notes


Fixed a bug about the location of the Freemind visor.


This macro uses the Flash version of the Freemind visor to display a Freemind mindmap.
