Tanzu Developer Tools for Visual Studio Code
Tanzu Developer Tools is VMware Tanzu's official IDE extension for VS Code which helps you develop on Tanzu Application Platform enabled Kubernetes clusters. VMware Tanzu Application Platform (TAP) is a modular, application-aware platform that provides a rich set of developer tooling and a prepaved path to production to build and deploy software quickly and securely on any compliant public cloud or on-premises Kubernetes cluster.
The Tanzu Developer Tools extension provides an easy way for you to see your workloads (applications or micro services) on supported Kubernetes clusters with TAP installed, understand details of the Kubernetes resources associated with your workloads including errors and logs, and enables you to rapidly iterate on your workloads.
See code updates running on-cluster in seconds
Using Live Update the Tanzu Developer Tools extension enables you to deploy your workload once, then save changes to the code and see those changes reflected within seconds in the workload running on the cluster.
Apply, Debug, and Delete workloads on cluster directly from VS Code
The Tanzu Developer Tools extension enables you to rapidly iterate on your workloads on TAP by allowing you to deploy them as workloads, debug them in a production-like environment on your TAP-enabled Kubernetes cluster, and delete workloads directly from within VS Code.
Watch workloads running on the cluster
From the Tanzu Workload panel you can see and take actions on any workload found within the cluster and namespace.
Kubernetes resource error information, pod logs, and describe
From the Tanzu Activity tab you can track the status of each workload on supported Kubernetes clusters with TAP installed. Easily understand Kubernetes resources that are experiencing errors, get pod logs, and describe any resource.
This extension must be used with a supported Kubernetes cluster that has a Tanzu Application Platform installed. Download TAP here. Make sure you have the following installed on your workstation:
