  • terracognita

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

    Project mention: terracognita - --tags syntax for aws? | | 2022-08-17 should fix it

  • inframap

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

    Project mention: Diagram as Code | | 2022-06-23

    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:



    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.

  • tfmigrate

    A Terraform state migration tool for GitOps

    Project mention: Refactoring, state operations in CI/CD | | 2022-09-24

    I've seen tools such as which looks like it'd work for existing deployments, however the piece I'm missing is how you'd manage to handle not running all the migrations when it is a new deployment, rather than an update of an existing deployment.

  • terraform-aws-tfstate-backend

    Terraform module that provision an S3 bucket to store the `terraform.tfstate` file and a DynamoDB table to lock the state file to prevent concurrent modifications and state corruption.
