Observe Your Live Application — Straight From Visual Studio Code

Lightrun supports Visual Studio Code — Microsoft’s flagship open source IDE — and allows you to:

  • Add Lightrun Logs, Metrics, and Snapshots straight from the VS Code interface
  • Observe your live application alongside the source code
  • Remain highly secure and performant: no access to source code required

Developer Observability For VS Code

Developer time is precious and should be spent crafting creative code, not diving through endless logs, metrics and traces.

Lightrun is a developer observability platform that empowers you to understand anything that happens in a live application — all straight from your IDE.

  • Dynamically Instrument Live Applications: On demand, in real time without stopping the application
  • Never Leave The IDE: Pop the hood on your live application without moving away from your code
  • Get What You Need, When You Need It: Lightrun’s console lets you see output in real-time with a dedicated view that enables analysis within VS Code

Dynamically Instrument Your Live Applications

Imagine if, wherever you are working, you could connect straight to your live applications and add telemetry on the fly without having to release a new version.

Lightrun enables you to perform dynamic instrumentation across all of your environments at the same time to debug them, inspect their state and troubleshoot difficult issues. Lightrun is:

  • Deployment-Agnostic: Works in cloud-native applications, Kubernetesserverless and much more
  • Supported Across Multiple Runtimes: Including Node.js, Python, Java, Scala, Kotlin and .NET (C# and #F).
  • Available For All Environments: Debug local, staging, QA and production environments without a direct connection or networking hidden secrets
