Diagram as Code.

Diagrams lets you draw the cloud system architecture in Python code. It was born for prototyping a new system architecture design without any design tools. You can also describe or visualize the existing system architecture as well. Diagrams currently supports six major providers: AWS, Azure, GCP, Kubernetes, Alibaba Cloud and Oracle Cloud.

Diagram as Code also allows you to tracking the architecture diagram changes on any version control system.

NOTE: It does not control any actual cloud resources nor generate cloud formation or terraform code, but just for drawing the cloud system architecture diagrams.

Getting Started

It uses Graphviz to render the diagram, so you need to install Graphviz to use diagrams. After installing graphviz (or already have it), install the diagrams.

macOS users can download the Graphviz via brew install graphviz if you're using Homebrew.

# using pip (pip3)
$ pip install diagrams

# using pipenv
$ pipenv install diagrams

# using poetry
$ poetry add diagrams

You can start with quick start. Check out guides for more details, and you can find all available nodes list in here.
