With the static structure diagrams (System Landscape, System Context, Container and Component), Structurizr allows you to define an animation, consisting of a number of steps where elements and/or relationships are displayed. As with presentation tools like Microsoft PowerPoint, the animation feature allows you to reveal parts of the diagram to help tell a story.
As illustrated by the example below, the buttons are as follows:
- Step animation backward.
- Play animation.
- Stop animation.
- Step animation forward.
This is the System Context diagram for the Big Bank plc Internet Banking System example, and the animation allows you to describe the diagram one element at a time.
