AppMap for Visual Studio Code
AppMap for Visual Studio Code is a runtime code analysis tool.
AppMap records detailed traces of your code, using a simple configuration that includes many useful defaults for the language and framework you're using. Once you've recorded your code, it provides powerful code visualization and two-way links between code and diagrams. And it includes automated analysis that helps you find and fix common coding flaws in your code editor, before you ship.
AppMap helps you and your colleagues ship correct and efficient code while spending less time on code review and frustrating rework.
AppMap works best with web application and API frameworks, such as Ruby on Rails, Django, Flask, Express, and Spring. That's because AppMap has built-in expertise about the frameworks and techniques used to build back end code - including web services, view templates, HTTP client requests, caching, authentication, and SQL. You can map any kind of project that’s written in a supported language, but it’s when you map a database-backed web application or API service that you’ll see the full power of AppMap.
Summary of features
By hooking up the AppMap extension to the AppMap server, you'll gain access to powerful AppMap Analysis capabilities.
AppMap Analysis runs in your local environment. It analyzes your AppMaps and highlights potential problems in the categories of Performance, Security, and Stability. AppMap finds these problems as you code, so you can investigate and fix them right away - before you commit and push your code for review.
AppMap Analysis finds problems that static analysis can't find - and it's much faster than dynamic security analysis (DAST).
