Introducing the Stripe Extension for VS Code By
Admin October 22, 2021
RRR, often an abbreviation used for Reverse Repo Rate, is an RBI policy tool. ‘REPO’
itself stands for ‘Repurchase Option’. The Reverse Repo Rate meaning is the rate at
which banks lend money to RBI as a loan or rather as a deposit in RBI. RBI pledges
collateral of government securities and banks park their excess funds at RBI. RBI
pays the banks the interest at Reverse Repo Rate to have account deposits and buy
back these securities when the tenure of the Reverse Repo Rate ends. The Current
Reverse Repo Rate is 3.35%. RBI sets the Reverse Repo Rate in India as per the
Monetary Policy of the country.
Today, we're launching the Stripe extension for Visual Studio Code, one of the most
popular integrated development environments.
With the VS Code extension, you can stream logs and webhook events from the Stripe
API to your local development machine, quickly access the API reference by hovering
over resource methods, easily get started with one of Stripe’s sample apps, and much
To get started, check out the installation instructions.
Test webhooks and requests
When developing a Stripe integration, it’s common to create a server backend that can
respond to asynchronous webhook events. With the VS Code extension, you can now
trigger events and forward them to your local development server to simplify testing
and debugging webhook endpoints.
The VS Code extension also allows you to monitor Stripe logs in real time, which can
be helpful for debugging bad requests.
Quickly access the API reference
To help minimize context switching, you can now hover over a Stripe resource method
or parameter in your code and the extension will link it directly to the
corresponding entry in the Stripe API reference.
Get started with code snippets
The extension can generate code snippets of basic requests for API resources to speed
up your integration process. Once expanded, you can tab through sections of code
that need to be filled in with values.
Support for Stripe Samples
Stripe Samples provide all of the client and server code you need for common
integration scenarios, such as creating a subscription with Stripe Billing or
accepting different payment methods. With the VS Code extension, you can clone and
open a sample in a new workspace—the extension will automatically populate your API
keys in the sample’s .env file.
The Stripe extension is available in the Visual Studio Marketplace and supports
macOS, Windows, and Linux. Check out the full installation instructions if you need
