Resource Browser

The Resource Browser allows you to view and manage your local AWS resources through the LocalStack Web Application.


The LocalStack Resource Browser allow you to view, manage, and deploy AWS resources locally while building & testing their cloud applications locally. It provides an internal, integrated experience, similar to the AWS Management Console, to manage the ephemeral resources in a LocalStack container on your local machine.

LocalStack Web Application's Resource Browsers outlining various local AWS services

The Resource Browser provide an experience similar to the AWS Management Console. However, the Resource Browser is not a replacement for the AWS Management Console and only replicate some of the features of the AWS Management Console. We recommend using our integrations to create your resources, with the Resource Browser being used for quick viewing and management of your resources.

The LocalStack Web Application connects to your LocalStack container and retrieves the information about your local resources directly via localhost without using the internet. None of the information is sent to the internet, or stored on any external servers maintained by LocalStack.
