  • Documentation as Code for Cloud - C4 Model & Structurizr
    5 projects | | 2 Nov 2023
    Structurizr is used for describing and visualizing architecture using the C4 model. One of the main selling points is the fact you can define an entire (IT) architecture model using text. A typical model consists of:

    I've been using to automatically generate C4 diagrams from a model (rather than drawing them by hand). It works well with the approach for written documentation as proposed in It's very easy to embed a C4 diagram into a markdown document.

    The result is a set of documents and diagrams under version control that can be rendered using the structurizr documentation server (for interactive diagrams and indexed search).

    I also use for declarative diagrams in addition to C4, e.g., sequence diagrams and for architectural decision records. These are also well integrated into structurizr.

  • Mastering Software Architecture Visualization with the C4 Model
    2 projects | | 19 May 2023
    Structurizr, available at and also has a free plan available with a single workspace available, is a tool that allows you to build out a C4 model using its Structurizr DSL to outline the Containers, Components, and Contexts of the architecture. It is a valuable tool for designing and visualizing a software architecture. In this example we'll build out a simple Machine Learning Pipeline, I mean a very basic one, featuring an ETL Pipeline and a model that trains images that classifies it as a image of planet earth or not. To begin, lets define our work space.
  • Top 9 software architecture tools

    Structurizr builds upon "diagrams as code", allowing you to create multiple diagrams from a single model using a number of tools and programming languages.

  • Launch HN: IcePanel (YC W23) – Onboard engineers with explorable system designs
    5 projects | | 11 Jan 2023
    As a customer since 2021, is this re-launch HN?

    Loved the concept, found it fell over for real-sized things on even the most powerful machines, had to switch to Structurizr to do our C4 modeling:

    Was very disappointed, bet I'd get more devs to model architecture with this tool. If it's relaunching because perf problems were resolved, will look forward to try it again.

    Depending on scope of people's needs, either highly recommended or, try it first.

    Hats off to Victor for great support back then, and I see the docs are a reflection of that, like this section on embedding into popular tools:

    TL;DR: Helpful team, thoughtful UI, thoughtful docs, a product capability (c4 modeling) very worth understanding and using.
