Generates a DOT file to visualise your sceptre environments

Project description

Helps you visualise your Sceptre projects with Graphviz (DOT).



  • Visualisation can be added as a documentation artefact to your project
  • Having many explicit/implicit dependencies can slow down deployments. Use the generated dependency graph to quickly spot bottlenecks due to these dependencies.


Install graphviz for your operating system as per official instuctions.

Install this package in the same python interpreter (virtualenv) that Sceptre is installed so that its python library is already available: pip install sceptre-dot


In the same directory where you would normally invoke sceptre launch -y $YOUR_PATH, run:

sceptre-dot $YOUR_PATH >
fdp -Tpng -o output.png # use fdp engine for best results

Released under the Simplified BSD Licence.
