I'm looking for a nice package (or tool) to write BPMN diagrams directly into my documents. However, I had no luck so far.

I found several tools that may help doing the diagrams, and then exporting to SVG or PDF directly. However, I want something more native to LaTeX, like Tikz.

I found this question, but is deleted and I have no access to it. (Also, I'm not sure if this question doesn't belong here, and that is why that question got deleted in the first place. If that is the case, putting some kind of message in this question would be a good idea instead of just sending the question to oblivion.)

Also, found a couple of initial directions, like:

But I couldn't find a full package that may help doing a full diagram, and easing the maintenance, or work load to start from scratch to create diagrams.

Any help or pointers on where to look are appreciated.

  • I you don't find a specific package for it (I am not aware of one), then just use tikz as in the two examples you linked to. – Peter Grill Jun 13 '14 at 18:59
  • Try tikzedt.org with my library you found :) There is also one for events which are more challenging (blog.kubovy.eu/2013/09/30/latex-tikz-bpmn-2-0-events) – user2564748 Feb 16 '16 at 15:36
  • soo @user2564748 the link you posted (just like the link in the OP) are both returning a 403 Forbidden – Vogel612 Jul 12 '17 at 13:41

Have you seen tikz tikz-bpmn package here? https://github.com/behnaaz/gdeploy/blob/master/francegrilles/tikz-bpmn.sty

Examples of how to use it can be found here: https://github.com/behnaaz/gdeploy/blob/master/francegrilles/slides.tex

>     \node[event] (start) {};
>       \node[task,node distance=3em,right=of start] (updglite) { Update \\ all nodes };
>       \draw[sequence,->] (start) -- (updglite);

    This is the library itself can you add an example about its usage? – percusse Mar 20 '18 at 12:44
  • I put some small piece here but I post a link for much better examples. – BeC Mar 20 '18 at 12:50
