  • Browser-based collaboration with others I tried out mindmeister and imported a .mm file no problem. The collaboration works pretty dang well. You can also import/export as other digital printing formats.
  • Dynamic mind maps from CMS: Sitemap, weblinks and feeds dynamically generated from the content management system Joomla (Freemind Flashbrowser). A german article for this tool is here: [1].
  • YACS is a content management system with native support of Freemind. It embeds two Freemind players (Flash and Java), and any uploaded map can be browsed interactively. Also, YACS may build a Freemind map out of the content tree, or part of it. And it may even combine the two features, for example to layout complex content as a Freemind map.
  • Freemind Win Collab : Share your mindmaps and built them in large format digital printing collaboration. This simple batch file autorise collaboration on freemind maps via a fileserver. If you can access the same disk with your collegues in your organisation, you can now work together on your mindmaps : this script avoid multiple edition at the same time (lock the file for you and tell the others that YOU edit it for the moment) and make service truck bodies backups each time you open a mindmap (like Work only on windows.
  • ZMSMindMaps: An Add-on to ZMS (Zope based Content Management for Science, Technology and Medicine) for viewing, exporting and importing of Mindmaps.
  • Joom!FreeMind - Joomla! 1.5.x site structure: Visual self-generated Sitemap from Joomla 1.5.x content - a Joomla component displaying the site structure through a link from a menu, a menu item or a simple hyperlink placed inside the published articles (Joom!FreeMind v2.1.9). The extension generates an appealing visual mindmap observing your Joomla menus, categories and sections. Joom!FreeMind 2.1.9 kept the two different ways of rendering maps by either using the sections-categories structure or the published menus. It also brings the option of rendering maps through the alternative flash based viewer if you do not want to use the java applet on your site.Lisa Alloju
  • Mind Listening?: Enhance Freemind by recording audio while creating a mind fort worth web development map. While reviewing a mind map, highlighting a node instantly jumps the audio to the point when the node was created. Uses include meeting notes, brainstorming sessions, meeting clients, lecture notes and agile development.
  • Below is a Unix sed command to remove the optional data from a MindMap .mm file's XML to make it more reader-friendly, keeping only the TEXT attribute. After converting a MindMap file with this command, you can open the generated XML file in Firefox and use its XML element collapsing features to interactively view MindMaps even without Freemind installed.
    sed -e "s/ \(CREATED\|MODIFIED\|ID\|POSITION\|FOLDED\)=\"[0-9a-zA-Z_]*\"//g" > New.xml
    For version 0.9, this command drops more:
    sed -e "s/ \(CREATED\|MODIFIED\|ID\|POSITION\|FOLDED\|COLOR\)=\"#\?[0-9a-zA-Z_]*\"//g" -e "s/<\(font\|hook\)[^>]\+\?>//g" > New.xml
