Two things to know:

  • This macro is now deprecated. At the moment it's still available but you'll need to edit your xwiki.cfg configuration file and add xwiki.render.velocity.macrolist=/templates/macros.vm,/templates/deprecatedMacros.vm. The macro can be removed at any time and you're highly recommended to stop using it.
  • There's now a better FreeMind Macro which uses Flash and thus doesn't require any JAR and which is easier to use.

Displays an attached Freemind mindmap using the Freemind applet.


#mindmap($mapname $width $height)

You can also check the Sitemap example using the MindMap macro.



Prerequisites & Installation Instructions

To use this macro you'll need to make sure that the Freemind JAR is available in your WEB-INF/lib directory. If not you'll need to put it there.

This macro uses an Applet to display the mindmap and thus requires the Java Plugin to be installed in your browser.
