Make Apps Editor
Make supports writing custom apps in Visual Studio Code (VS Code) with the Make Apps Editor extension. You can get the VS Code extension from the VS Code Marketplace or install it in the Extensions tab in VS Code.
You write and edit the custom app configuration with the VS Code extension as you would edit a JSON file on your PC. The custom app configuration is downloaded to your PC when you open it from VS Code and uploaded to Make when you save it. The custom app configuration is stored on your PC as temporary files. The temporary files are deleted after you close the configuration. Because of this, you cannot use a local version control system (
git, for example) to version control your custom app configuration.
The custom app configuration is associated with your account in Make. The communication with the VS Code extension and your Make account is authorized with an API key. To set up the VS Code extension you have to provide an API key with the appropriate API key scopes. Generate a new Make API key if you don't have one.
