inframap VS diagrams

Compare inframap vs diagrams and see what are their differences.

inframap

Read your tfstate or HCL to generate a graph specific for each provider, showing only the resources that are most important/relevant. (by cycloidio)

    Like Blast Radius, InfraMap generates visual graphs of your infrastructure based on Terraform state or configurations, offering a visual overview of your infrastructure, which is especially helpful for large and complex environments.

    We also contribute to the open-source community with projects like InfraMap, that generate your infra diagram on the fly based on your tfstate or the most famous TerraCognita, a reverse Terraform.

    Pretty cool. The biggest thing I think is missing from many popular diagramming tools is the ability to easily diff the architecture across changes. Although that can already be done with graphviz source files.

    However, these days I prefer to just have diagrams generated from the source code itself, like:

    - https://github.com/cycloidio/inframap

    - https://graphviz.org/Gallery/directed/bazel.html

    In order to make a compelling use case out of having to maintain a parallel definition like this, I think it needs to be able to contribute to analysis like formal verification or, despite them stating that it's not a goal, being able to create the described architecture. Or even generate something like a terraform plan. Otherwise it falls victim to the same problem as any other method of creating diagrams, that of them falling out of sync with the system.

    They are a long way there already by providing a way to use a programming language backed by a large ecosystem of other tools that can be used to work with e.g. terraform, like python/go.

    Also if you want to easily visualize your HCL or TFState we did https://github.com/cycloidio/inframap which will allow you to visualize those in a more easy/readable way than just JSON.

What are some alternatives?

When comparing inframap and diagrams you can also consider the following projects:

terraform - Terraform enables you to safely and predictably create, change, and improve infrastructure. It is a source-available tool that codifies APIs into declarative configuration files that can be shared amongst team members, treated as code, edited, reviewed, and versioned.

c4-draw.io - Draw.io template/diagram containing C4 Model shapes. Drawio Diagrams.net

terraformer - CLI tool to generate terraform files from existing infrastructure (reverse Terraform). Infrastructure to Code

Graphviz - Simple Python interface for Graphviz

terracognita - Reads from existing public and private cloud providers (reverse Terraform) and generates your infrastructure as code on Terraform configuration

obsidian-excalidraw-plugin - A plugin to edit and view Excalidraw drawings in Obsidian

rover - Interactive Terraform visualization. State and configuration explorer.

pygraphviz - Python interface to Graphviz graph drawing package

excalidraw-converter - A command line tool for porting Excalidraw diagrams to Gliffy and draw.io.

excalidraw - Virtual whiteboard for sketching hand-drawn like diagrams

diagram - CLI app to convert ASCII arts into hand drawn diagrams.

vscode-drawio - This unofficial extension integrates Draw.io (also known as diagrams.net) into VS Code.
