Gaphor is a contraction of GNOME (or GTK) and Aphorism: "A pithy observation that contains a general truth", "A concise statement of a scientific principle."

Make your Point

Modelling is about communication. It's about getting the picture. That's why Gaphor does not restrict the elements you can use in one diagram. If it makes sense to mix use cases and classes, do so.

An important design principle in Gaphor is that all information in the model should be represented in the diagrams. All Information should be accessible through the diagrams. That's why everything is modelled, even Stereotypes.
