Understand complex code in minutes

With AppMap, quickly understand how new-to-you code works, even when the codebase is old and complex. AppMap automatically generates a complete map of code’s terrain so you can easily navigate from point A to point B. Access end-to-end code and data flows, web services catalogs and database schemas, all from your code editor.

See how code actually works

When software documentation is out-of-date and nobody’s there to help you, code is the only source of truth. AppMap helps you learn from the code itself in your code editor. Recorded execution traces show how the entire application stack works, including how web services are actually behaving and how SQL queries are being executed.
