re: Infrastructure diagrams as code VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Very nice! I'd be interested to hear more about how it works under-the-hood to draw those diagrams.

On another note, have you heard of Mermaid.js or PlantUML? They are both programming-ish languages for drawing diagrams like these, you might find them very useful for infrastructure documentation!

 

Thanks! For now it's a very thin wrapper around the network module of vis.js. Vis.js does all the hard work here, I mostly configured it with all the right settings that make sense in this case (and added some icons).

Thanks for mentioning those! I've heard of both but haven't given them an extensive look yet. I do like the idea of the documentation being actual code, but some specialized markup like these libraries use of course also has a lot of advantages.
