Using Application Composer with your local IDE - AWS Application Composer

Using Application Composer with your local IDE

Use AWS Application Composer from the AWS Management Console with local sync mode to connect with your local integrated development environment (IDE).

Benefits of using Application Composer with your local IDE

As you design in Application Composer, your local template and project directory are automatically synced and saved.

You can use your local IDE to view changes and modify your templates. Changes that you make locally are automatically synced to Application Composer.

You can use local tools such as the AWS Serverless Application Model Command Line Interface (AWS SAM CLI) to build, test, deploy your application, and more.
