Introducing the Gradle Module Graph Plugin! ?

This plugin generates a Mermaid graph for your Gradle project, providing a visual representation of your project’s module relationships. By illustrating the connections between modules, it makes it easier to grasp your project’s structure and interdependencies.

A diagram about the current system is only useful if it’s generated. If it is produced by hand it documents the author’s belief, not the system. Still, important, but not an input for decision making. Development is primarily decision making. Enable it through custom tools. source

You can read more about the background story of this plugin here.


  • Generate a Mermaid dependency graph of the modules in your Gradle project
  • Automatically append the generated graph to your project’s README file

Getting Started

You’ll just need to add it to your project’s root build.gradle or build.gradle.kts file.

build.gradle (Groovy DSL)

Using the plugins DSL

plugins {
  id "dev.iurysouza.modulegraph" version "0.2.2"

Using legacy plugin application

buildscript {
  repositories {
    maven {
      url ""
  dependencies {
    classpath "dev.iurysouza:modulegraph:0.2.2"

apply plugin: "dev.iurysouza.modulegraph"

Configuring the plugin

  moduleGraphConfig {
      readmePath = '$projectDir/'
      heading = '### Dependency Diagram'
      theme = Theme.NEUTRAL
build.gradle.kts (Kotlin DSL)

Using the plugins DSL

plugins {
  id("dev.iurysouza.modulegraph") version "0.2.2"

Using legacy plugin application

buildscript {
  repositories {
    maven {
      url = uri("")
  dependencies {

apply(plugin = "dev.iurysouza:modulegraph")

Configuring the plugin

moduleGraphConfig {
    heading.set("### Dependency Diagram")


To configure the Gradle Module Dependency Graph Plugin, you can set the following options:

  • readmePath: The path of the file where the dependency graph will be appended.
  • theme: The mermaid theme to be used for styling the graph. Default is NEUTRAL.
  • heading: The heading where the dependency graph will be appended.


To generate the Mermaid dependency graph for your project, run the following command:

./gradlew createModuleGraph

Example Diagram

You can expect the plugin to generate this kind of diagram after running the plugin:

  init: {
    'theme': 'neutral'
