arc42 Template ("Golden Master")

arc42 - the template for effective, practical and pragmatic software architecture documentation and communication.

Initially created by Dr. Gernot Starke and Dr. Peter Hruschka (way back in 2005…​), free and open source.

This repository contains all downloadable versions plus the (AsciiDoc) source of the arc42 template.

It is used to:

  • generate (by the arc42-generator project) the official download formats (i.e. docx, markdown, docbook and others).

  • maintain structure, content and help for the template

  • keep non-asciidoc formats (like EAP).

In case you find issues within the template or its explanations, this is the repo to fix and issue pull requests :-)


Please refer to the official download page for all downloads.
