Now you can easily record and share AppMap Diagrams of complex, backend bugs right in your code editor! Install from the JetBrains or VSCode marketplaces, and read our blog post that includes a quick, 1 minute demo on the new feature.

It’s not quite ready for the wild, but the official release of AppMap for JavaScript will be here soon! So far, the JavaScript agent can record code execution from popular test frameworks, HTTP requests, SQL commands and more.
