Using the AWS Toolkit for VS Code, customers can now access Simple Storage Service (S3) resources in their account using the AWS Explorer view in the code editor. S3 integration makes it easy for customers to access S3 buckets and S3 objects in those buckets without leaving the VS Code interface. All CRUD (create, read, update, delete) operations for S3 can be performed: Creating objects in buckets, adding folders to buckets, deleting objects, and viewing the contents of objects.

The AWS Toolkit for VS Code is an open-source plugin that lets you leverage the integrated development environment (IDE) for the creation, debugging, and deployment of software applications on Amazon Web Services. The AWS Toolkit extension shows resources in your AWS account through the AWS Explorer view. This interface option enables you to interact with an array of AWS services to carry out tasks such as viewing S3 resources, opening CloudWatch logs, and invoking Lambda functions.

Install the AWS Toolkit and check out the AWS Toolkit User Guide. You can share your feedback using the feedback tool in the IDE plugin, or submit feature requests and issues on GitHub.
