Generate software diagrams using Python syntax

Project description


pydiagrams is a tool to generate software diagrams by using Python as a DSL. pydiagrams providers a framework for describing a software diagram as python code, and translating into it source code specific to a rendering program.

It can generate the following types of diagrams:

  • Flowcharts
  • Database "View" diagrams / Data flow diagrams
  • UML Component diagrams
  • Integration Architecture diagrams

These diagrams are can be generated via a choice of rendering programs:


Diagram generation languages (such as PlantUML, Graphviz, Blockdiag) provide general-purpose diagrams, but require the user to learn a specific syntax. They each have certain strengths and weaknesses that sometimes require switching from one format to another. pydiagrams instead provides a simple python-DSL that allows the user to write a single diagram that is can then be translated into the rendering program of choice.
