Diagrams to code (d2c) - Infrastructure as code generator - from visual diagrams to Terraform

Financial Contributors on Open Collective MIT license @antonbabenko - Infrastructure as code generator - from visual diagrams to Terraform

Code in this repository is used for generating infrastructure as Terraform configurations from visual diagrams created using Cloudcraft.

How can I try this?

  1. Sign up for a free account with Cloudcraft.
  2. Draw AWS architecture in web-browser (you can import live AWS resources, too).
  3. Click "Export" and "Terraform code export" at the top right side.
  4. Download archive and extract it locally.
  5. Follow step-by-step instructions in which you can find inside of it.

How do the generated Terraform configurations look like?

In repository you can see the exact configuration code generated from sample "Web App Reference Architecture".

Developer's guide

This project is Python 3.8 serverless application written using framework and open-source components (Terraform AWS modules).

Notes for developers

Terraform is used to provision infrastructure resources as well as packaging artifacts and to do the deployments (check out for more details).

Source code is located in src/

Go to directory terraform, verify/update file terraform.tfvars and run:

$ terraform init     # Download required Terraform providers and modules
$ terraform apply    # Create or update infrastructure resources or do a new deployment of Lambda function (if source code has changed)

When infrastructure is created, you should be able to POST using httpie or curl like this:

$ http --print Hhb --all --follow @test_fixtures/input/blueprint_my.json
