Aws Toolkit Visual Studio For Mac

I have aws serverless application with two different template file. Now I need to know the command to deploy from Visual Studio for MAC using aws-lambda-tools-defaults.json file. Tried using dot.

  1. The AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio is a plugin to the Visual Studio IDE. With the toolkit you can deploy and manage applications in Elastic Beanstalk while you are working in your Visual Studio environment.
  2. AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio เป็นส่วนขยายสำหรับ Microsoft Visual Studio ที่ทำงานบน Microsoft Windows ทำให้นักพัฒนาสามารถพัฒนา แก้จุดบกพร่อง และปรับใช้แอปพลิเคชัน.NET โดยใช้ Amazon Web Services ได้.

AWS Toolkit is an extension for Visual Studio Code that enables you to interact with Amazon Web Services (AWS).See the AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio Code user guide for complete documentation.

See Setup for installation requirements, or Get help for support.

CDK Explorer

The AWS CDK Explorer enables you to work with AWS Cloud Development Kit (CDK) applications. It shows a top-level view of your CDK applications that have been sythesized in your workspace.

With the CDK explorer, you can navigate the CDK application's infrastructure stacks, resources, and policies.

For full details see the AWS CDK Explorer in the user guide.

AWS Serverless Applications

The AWS Toolkit enables you to develop AWS serverless applications locally. It also provides CodeLenses in VS Code to do the following:

  • Use SAM (serverless application model) templates to build and debug your locally developed AWS serverless applications.
  • Run selected AWS Lambda functions.

To start debugging with a SAM template, click the Add Debug ConfigurationCodeLens in the template file.

The CodeLens indicator in the SAM template allows you to add a debug configuration for the serverless application.

Alternatively, you can run and debug just the AWS Lambda function and exclude other resources defined by the SAM template. Again, use a CodeLens indicator for an AWS Lambda-function handler. (A handler is a function that Lambda calls to start execution of a Lambda function.)

The CodeLens indicator in the application file lets you add a debug configuration for a selected AWS Lambda function.

When you run a debug session, the status and results are shown in the OUTPUT panel when the AWS Toolkit output channel is selected.

After a local run is complete, the output appears in the OUTPUT tab.

When you're satisfied with performance, you can deploy your serverless application. The SAM template is converted to a CloudFormation template, which is then used to deploy all the application's assets to the AWS Cloud.

Launch config auto-completion ('IntelliSense')

The Add Debug ConfigurationCodeLens creates launch configs of typeaws-sam in the VS Code launch.json file. You can also create these entriesby hand.

Aws Visual Studio Extension

When editing launch.json configs, AWS Toolkit provides auto-completion andcontextual documentation, as shown below.

Supported runtimes

The Toolkit local SAM debugging feature supports these runtimes:

  • C# (.NET Core 2.1)
    • .NET Core 3.1 is supported for run but not debug
  • JavaScript (Node.js 10.x, 12.x)
  • Python (2.7, 3.6, 3.7, 3.8)

For more information see Working with AWS Serverless Applications in the user guide.

Amazon CloudWatch Logs

The AWS Toolkit provides support for Amazon CloudWatch Logs. Using the AWS Explorer of the Toolkit, you can perform the following operations on Log Groups:

  • List CloudWatch Log Groups
  • View Log Streams for a Log Group

Viewing a Log Stream will immediately load the most recent 10,000 lines or 1 MB of data (whichever is smaller), and their timestamps. From this view, users can access the following actions:

  • Load older or newer log events
  • Save currently-loaded Log Stream to a log file
  • Copy Log Stream name

Example:

For full details, see Working with CloudWatch Logs in the Toolkit's user guide.

Amazon EventBridge Schemas

The AWS Toolkit provides support for Amazon EventBridge schemas. Using the AWS Explorer of the Toolkit, you can perform the following operations on these schemas:

  • View an available schema
  • Search for an available schema
  • Generate code for an available schema

Example:

For full details, see Working with Amazon EventBridge Schemas in the Toolkit's user guide.

Amazon ECS task definition files

The AWS Toolkit provides support for Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS). With the Toolkit installed in VS Code, IntelliSense functionality is provided for Amazon ECS task-definition files that you are updating in the editor.

Example:

For full details, see Working with Amazon Elastic Container Service in the Toolkit's user guide.

  • Templates and code snippets to help kickstart your Automation document

Example:

For full details, see Working with AWS Systems Manager Documents in the Toolkit's user guide.

AWS Step Functions

The AWS Toolkit provides support for AWS Step Functions. With the Toolkit installed in VS Code, working with state machines is a more streamlined process.

  • Create, update, execute, and download state machines.
  • See live graph visualizations of your state machine.
  • Take advantage of features such as code completion and validation, and code snippets.

Example:

For full details, see Working with AWS Step Functions in the Toolkit's user guide.

In this tutorial I'll create a Serverless AWS Lambda Web API using, AWS Toolkit along with Visual Studio 2017, which will help to write and deploy the API all from inside the Visual Studio interface.

Why the focus on AWS Toolkit?

I’ve been interested in AWS for a while and I’ve noticed they have recently promoted their .NET core services by providing .NET tools, webinars and tutorials. In the recent 2018 AWS summit in Chicago, they dedicated multiple topics to using their cloud for the development and the deployment of .NET applications. They touted “AWS loves .NET”, in a way to attract more .NET workshops to shift to AWS instead of using cloud services from their biggest competitor — Azure.

What is the AWS toolkit?

The AWS toolkit is a Visual Studio extension that supports 2013, 2015, and 2017 (only the Windows version, Mac version is not supported yet). This tool helps developers to create, debug, and publish applications to AWS all from Visual Studio. Such tasks can also be done using AWS console and they also have a similar AWS tool for Eclipse for other languages.

Let's create a simple Serverless .NET Core Web API with AWS Lambda to demonstrate using this tool in Visual Studio. We will also be using some other services such as S3 and IAM. We will hold off on discussing those details for now.

Creating a user

In order to set up and use the AWS Toolkit, create a user with administrator policy, then use this user’s access and secret keys to complete the setup.

Creating a user should be easy. After logging into AWS console, go to IAM then Users then click the “Add user” blue button. Then add the user information in 5 steps as below.

Step 3 is all about adding tags and more information to the account, and step 4 is a review page. Then you should be able to see the step 5 page, which has the access key as well as the secret key. Instead of copying these key, click the “download csv” button to get a csv file with the keys. Import the given csv file into the AWS toolkit later inside Visual Studio.

Installing the AWS Toolkit

The tool is available either through the AWS website or the Visual Studio Marketplace as an extension. You’ll be installing it that way. Under “Tools” -> “Extensions and updates” and then search for “AWS Toolkit” in the online extensions list, it should be right in the top. Click download. This might request you to restart Visual Studio to finish the installation.

After restarting Visual Studio, you'll be greeted by the AWS Toolkit welcome screen where the user’s access and secret keys should be added. In this case, click “Import from csv file” and that will take care of adding both of the keys. Finally, click the “Save and Close” yellow button.

In our next tutorial, we'll create the AWS Lambda project.

Together, we can help you identify the challenges facing you right now and take the first steps to elevate your cloud environment.
