To access Apigee in VS Code, launch VS Code and click in the Activity Bar, as shown in the following figure.
Apigee in VS Code consists of two main components, as shown in the left pane of the figure above:
- Apigee Explorer used to manage the Apigee workspace, develop and deploy your APIs, and build and export test resources
- Apigee Emulator used to view your local runtime emulator activity
Learn about the tasks that you can perform using each component in the following sections.
Exploring the Apigee Explorer
Use the Apigee Explorer to develop and deploy your API proxies in your local environment.
As highlighted in the previous figure, the Apigee Explorer enables you to perform the following tasks:
Attach policies to add features
Manage the resources required by policies
Configure and deploy environments
Build and export test resources for testing your APIs
Exploring the Apigee Emulator
Use the Apigee Emulator to view your local runtime emulator activity.
As highlighted in the previous figure, the Apigee Emulator enables you to:
View the status of the Apigee Emulator, including its running status, active deployed environment, and release ID
View currently deployed applications (see Deploying environments)
View active test resources (see Exporting test resources to the Apigee Emulator)
Start, stop, reset, and refresh the view of the Apigee Emulator, as described in Managing the Apigee Emulator
In addition, you can configure host and port settings for the Apigee Emulator, as described in Configuring the Apigee Emulator host and port settings.
For more information about the Apigee Emulator, see Managing the Apigee Emulator.
