Managing development environments with Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces 2

The release of Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces 2.0 (CRW) brings changes. Based on Eclipse Che 7 and the Theia online editor, CRW 2.0 frees the developer from the confines of a specially configured PC in favor of multiple specially configured workspaces. Imagine having a separate work environment for each language, version, tools and more, all available from a browser. This article discusses some of the features of CRW.

CodeReady Workspaces devfile, demystified

CodeReady Workspaces devfile, demystified

With the exciting advent of CodeReady Workspaces (CRW) 2.0 comes some important changes. Based on the upstream project Eclipse Che 7, CRW brings even more of the “Infrastructure as Code” idea to fruition. Workspaces mimic the environment of a PC, an operating system, programming language support, the tools needed, and an editor. The real power comes by defining a workspace using a YAML file—a text file that can be stored and versioned in a source control system such as Git. This file, called devfile.yaml, is powerful and complex. This article will attempt to demystify the devfile.

Eclipse Che 7 and the .NET developer

Eclipse Che 7, an open source in-the-browser development environment, allows you to define custom workspaces for your software development. Think of a workspace as you would think of a development PC: You have an operating system, programming language support, and all the tools necessary to write code. In this article, I’ll introduce the .NET developer to this new world and highlight ways you can use Eclipse Che to your advantage.

A look at development environments with specific tooling for Apache Camel Language

A look at development environments with specific tooling for Apache Camel Language

A growing set of editors and IDEs provides specific tooling for development of applications based on Apache Camel. Historically, there was only Eclipse Fuse Tooling, which was based on the Eclipse Desktop IDE. Then, an IntelliJ plugin was created. Both of these tools are tightly coupled to the specific IDE APIs. Consequently, they have the drawback of not easily sharing the development effort.

Supported editors and IDEs

Thanks to Language Server Protocol, with a core server and several configurations or small client development, Apache Camel Language can now be enjoyed on a growing set of environments:
