Cloud Code comes with tools to help you write, run, and debug cloud-native applications quickly and easily. Extensions to IDEs such as Visual Studio Code and IntelliJ are provided to let you rapidly iterate, debug, and run code on Kubernetes.

Cloud Code tools for maximizing developer productivity

Cloud Code for VS Code

Cloud Code for VS Code

Focus on writing code during Kubernetes development, not configuration files. Easily extend VS Code for a faster build, run, and debug cycle. Templates let you quickly define Kubernetes resource files. Run on either local clusters or across multiple cloud providers. Scale from a single service to a multi-service multi-environment app.

Cloud Code for IntelliJ

Cloud Code for IntelliJ

Easily create, update, and maintain Kubernetes resource files within IntelliJ. Build an accelerated feedback loop between your local machine and development cluster. Run Kubernetes wherever works best for you — whether in a local cluster or in the cloud. Plus, you don’t have to worry about scaling, so you can stay focused on your code.
