Automated infrastructure compliance and documentation

Pluralith automates compliance by documenting cloud infrastructure directly from the codebase. Companies like Jefferson Health pay us to automate their infrastructure compliance and save 5h a week per infrastructure engineer. More simply put: We generate infrastructure diagrams directly from Terraform state.

Hi we are Dan and Phi…

… and we are building Pluralith!


Title says it all. Pluralith lets you generate instant infrastructure diagrams from your Terraform codebase, locally (for development) and in CI (for documentation). Try it out here!

Watching > Reading

So here’s a freshly baked demo just for you!

The Problem(s)

Problem 1: Infrastructure documentation is super important and often even required for proper compliance, but can be really time intensive and nobody wants to do it. So you’ve got two options:

→ Stay compliant and have good docs BUT loads of dev hours spent on them

→ No/few dev hours spent on docs BUT break compliance and no docs when you need them

Problem 2: Terraform is awesome, but can become quite messy and intransparent at scale. Understanding what is actually going on requires digging through loads of code and terminal output. Again, lots of dev hours lost here.

The Solution: Enter Pluralith

Pluralith completely automates problem 1 away.

Run it in CI, automate parts of your compliance process and always have up-to-date infra diagrams whenever you need them. We throw them into PR comments and have a dedicated markdown integration so you can plug it straight into your existing docs (ReadMes, Confluence etc.). We do change highlighting, drift detection, cost calculations and compliance checks (coming soon) and keep a history of all this stuff in your Dashboard for you so you have a perfect record on how your infra changes over time.

Pluralith alleviates problem 2.

Replace miles of terminal output on a terraform plan with a comprehensive diagram that shows you what your infrastructure looks like, how it’ll change on apply, how much it’ll cost and wether it breaks compliance (coming soon). All you have to do is run pluralith plan instead.

How It Works

Locally: Download our desktop app and follow it’s setup guide. In a minute you should be able to run pluralith plan in any of your Terraform project directories and get a diagram instantly.

In CI: The illustration below says it all. Set up Terraform in your pipeline, run Pluralith and there you go. Right now we have dedicated integrations for GitHub Actions and Gitlab CI. (Many more to come)
