Altostra for VSCode
Design, Develop, Deploy Microservices with Speed and Confidence.
Software providers have a constant struggle to deliver software quickly and adapt to customer needs. Cloud infrastructure is a massive game-changer in the way we use software today, but it also creates a new set of challenges in software development.
This extension helps you to build modern cloud applications in minutes. Our goal is to get you more value from your cloud provider at less cost while increasing your productivity.
Currently, we support AWS. We will add other cloud providers such as GCP and Azure shortly.
This is an early release. If you are having issues, we'd like to know about them. Please tell us all about it at email@example.com.

A trigger connection specifies when and how a function is invoked in response to some event on the source resource. Use trigger connections to define the flow of your application as events occur thoughout. For example a Function can be invoked by a trigger connection from a Queue that has pending messages.
Access connections specify the type of access and conditions a source resource requires from a target resource. Access connections can be
Write your code
Once you have your application Blueprint defined, it's time to write some code for your functions. The code you write will be packged and deployed along with the resources you have defined.
Deploy to the cloud
Note: You need to have AWS credentials configured using the
