Makes working with Kubernetes feel like editing and debugging local code. Cloud Code from Google Cloud, tools for Cloud Native development


Cloud Code for VS Code extends VS Code to bring all the power and convenience of IDEs to developing cloud-native Kubernetes applications. With Google’s command-line container tools like skaffold and kubectl under the hood, Cloud Code gives you local, continuous feedback on your project as you build it, extending this local edit-compile-debug loop to create cloud-native Kubernetes environments, on your workstation or in the cloud. Support for deployment profiles lets you define different environments, like local development, shared development, test, or production, so you can easily test and debug on your workstation or in the cloud.
