You still have to drag & drop new resources but then either you update them via the idcard or via the code. Every edits you do are reflected into the diagram 👀
  1. Modify the value of an existing attribute for a specific resource, variable, or block within the Terraform code.
  2. Introduce new attributes or blocks for configurations such as a resource, relationship, Terraform module filename, or a distinct architectural design.
  3. Remove unnecessary attributes or blocks; the diagram will automatically update to reflect these changes.
