Video: Visualize the architecture of your Python app, in VS Code, in 2 ¹/₂ minutes

AppMap is a VSCode extension which helps you improve your code by showing you how it really behaves, feature by feature, as you work. It does this by automatically generating beautiful, interactive maps of architecture and code behavior right in your editor.

This 2 ¹/₂ minute video shows how install the AppMap extension, how to configure it to map both your code and the Django framework, and how to navigate your code using the interactive diagrams.

It uses the website code of the Chicago Python Users Group as an example. Try it yourself!
