2 Min Read

Encore Flow is the world's first intelligent visual backend architecture tool for the cloud. Flow helps you improve your microservices architecture, and makes it easy for everyone on the team to understand it. It lets you instantly identify which services depend on each other and how they work together. With Flow, building backends has never been easier – from designing your architecture and collaborating on pull requests, to onboarding new team members.

Encore Flow

Flow is now available for all Encore users! If you haven’t tried Encore yet, get started here.

🥐 If you already have Encore installed, run encore version update to upgrade.

Flow Key Features

  • Flow gives your entire team an accurate and up-to-date view of your entire system – point and click in all parts of your microservices architecture to instantly reveal how it’s wired.
  • Flow gives you a real-time view of the changes you’re making as you code, and will soon integrate with GitHub to automatically add visual context to every pull request.
  • Use Flow to follow API calls across services and visualize dependencies, to track down bottlenecks before they grow into big problems

Read more about Encore Flow in the docs.

Over the coming months we’ll extend Encore Flow with a suite of intelligent development tools, to make it even simpler to build your cloud backend. Follow us on Twitter or Star Encore on GitHub to stay up to date.
