Compared with CloudBase Cli, CloudBase Toolkit can complete various function operations in VS Code, complete project development and help developers complete work tasks without affecting the developer's development process or interrupting the developer's development rhythm.

Application scenarios

CloudBase Toolkit can realize the creation of cloud development projects, the deployment of cloud functions and static hosting files in VS Code, which is convenient for developers to quickly complete project development and improve work efficiency.

With the CloudBase Toolkit plug-in, you can:

  • Quickly create cloud development projects locally
  • Quickly create cloud functions from multiple templates
  • Synchronize the cloud function list in the cloud, and download the function code to the local
  • Deploy cloud functions to the cloud, and perform cloud installation dependencies
  • Manage cloud functions, such as deleting cloud functions and viewing cloud function details
  • Incremental update of cloud function files
  • Delete cloud function files in the cloud
  • Deploy static hosted files to the cloud

Please check the second tweet about the application of plug-ins for cloud function debugging .

After the login is successful, there will be a "login successful" prompt at the bottom right of the VS Code window. At the same time, if the cloudbaserc configuration file is not detected under the current project, CloudBase Toolkit will prompt you to create a cloud development project or create a configuration file.

Creating a cloud development project will pull the cloud module to create a brand new project, and creating a configuration file will only generate the cloudbaserc configuration file in the current directory.

Then, you can use CloudBase Toolkit to create the project:
