Introducing Structurizr Express

Create a single software architecture diagram using text

I rolled out a new feature to Structurizr at the weekend called Structurizr Express, which is basically a way to create software architecture diagrams using text. Although the core concept behind Structurizr is to create a software architecture model using code, there are times when you simply want a quick diagram, perhaps for a presentation, pre-sales proposal, etc. Structurizr Express will let you do just that - quickly create a single software architecture diagram using a textual definition. Much like tools such as PlantUML, yUML, WebSequenceDiagrams, etc.

Structurizr Express

Despite the name, this is all still based around the C4 model although it only targets one diagram at a time. The three types of diagrams currently supported are System Context, Container and Component diagrams. Structurizr Express is available to use now and the help page provides a description and examples of the syntax. I hope you find it useful.
