NoSQL Workbench for Amazon DynamoDB now includes a guided DynamoDB Local installation process to streamline setting up your DynamoDB local development environment. You can use this new feature to build, test, and deploy workloads on DynamoDB more quickly.

Previously, you could use NoSQL Workbench to visualize and build scalable, high-performance data models. However, to test DynamoDB API operations on your tables locally, you had to separately download and setup DynamoDB Local. With this new update in NoSQL Workbench, you can have DynamoDB Local up and running using a single NoSQL Workbench installer. With just one tool to get started with DynamoDB, you can save time from doing additional tooling discovery and focus on developing your application in a self-contained local environment even when you have no internet connection to your Amazon Web Services (AWS) account.

Get started with the latest version by downloading it from “Download NoSQL Workbench”. NoSQL Workbench is free and available for macOS, Linux, and Windows. For more information, see the developer guide for NoSQL Workbench.

NoSQL Workbench with DynamoDB Local is available in all AWS Regions that DynamoDB currently supports, except for the Middle East, Asia Pacific (Jakarta), and AWS GovCloud (US) Regions.
