What is Sysl?
Sysl is an open-sourced system specification language designed for modelling distributed web applications. A Sysl specification captures the design of your project—or your entire organisation—and becomes a single source of truth.
Sysl supports an ecosystem of tools that generate all kinds of artifacts, including:
- API documentation
- Design diagrams: data, integration and sequence
- SQL scripts: create and migrate databases
- Boilerplate code: client/server REST/gRPC in Go
Sysl saves time, allows you to focus on your core business logic, and guarantees that the design and implementation stay in sync.
Once you have
sysl working, start with the Tutorial to get a feel for what Sysl can do.
There are also use cases for engineers and non-engineers such as analysts, architects, testers, etc, and more in-depth details of the each of Sysl's features and the language itself.
