The AWS Toolkit for VS Code now provides developers with convenient IDE functionality to create and manage deployments from their code or image repositories using AWS App Runner. AWS App Runner is a fully managed service that makes it easy for customers without any prior containers or infrastructure experience to build, deploy, and run containerized web applications and APIs in just a few clicks.

With new App Runner features in the AWS Toolkit for VS Code, users can configure and deploy web services, track deployment status (i.e. view deployment notification logs) and monitor state of deployed services (i.e., services active, running, or paused), all without leaving their IDEs. Check out the Toolkit User Guide for more details.

Install the AWS Toolkit for VS Code to start using the new App Runner features from VS Code. Submit feedback, feature requests and issues on GitHub.
