The EdgeWorkers panel will be automatically added to the left side of the VSCode window.
The EdgeWorkers Toolkit for VSCode depends on the Akamai CLI, minimum version 1.3.0 with EdgeWorkers command minimum version 1.4.1. Many of our customers will already have this set up, but if not on first launch of the EdgeWorkers panel they will be prompted to install and set up OPEN API credentials in .edgerc as outlined in the developer docs. Usage from here assumes you have completed this step.
