Visualize the architecture of your Node.js app in under 5 minutes

AppMap is an open source 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 less-than-5-minute video shows how install the AppMap extension, how to configure it to map your Node.js code, and how to navigate your code using the interactive diagrams.

It uses an Express.js app as an example program.

For full usage instructions, check out the AppMap documentation.
