At 3.8-million installations, Red Hat extensions help developers with VS Code, Language Servers, and microservices

At 3.8-million installations, Red Hat extensions help developers with VS Code, Language Servers, and microservices

After three years of working on VS Code extensions, my team celebrates 3.8-million installations and more than 20-million downloads—two indicators that we are providing valuable VS Code extensions accepted by fellow developers. We also celebrate that our involvement with Language Server Protocols (LSPs) has helped open source communities of varying sizes to enable a wide selection of IDEs (Integrated Development Environments) and editors that in turn have made these communities stronger. So, how did we get here?

Getting started with the updated VS Code Yeoman extension for Camel projects

Getting started with the updated VS Code Yeoman extension for Camel projects

The Visual Studio (VS) Code IDE is one of the most-used platforms for JavaScript, C#, and Python developers and is quickly becoming one of the top three tooling environments at Red Hat. VS Code is highly customizable and offers a healthy and growing marketplace for extensions of all types and technologies, including an extension for Yeoman. In this article, I’ll explain how to get started using the updated extension that works with latest versions of VS Code.

Using VS Code to develop Spring Boot-based Camel and Red Hat Fuse projects

Using VS Code to develop Spring Boot-based Camel and Red Hat Fuse projects

Developing Apache Camel and Red Hat Fuse applications inside VS Code is improving! In my previous articles, I’ve mentioned that Camel URI completion is available in VS Code for XML and Java DSL. By leveraging several VS Code extensions, it is now possible to have an end-to-end development experience. The Camel tooling currently available in VS Code is primarily targeting Spring Boot– based Camel applications. The tooling covers the development process from creating a Camel project, testing, and debugging it locally, to automatically-rebuilding and redeploying it on your local OpenShift/Kubernetes instance when you make changes.

There are several ways to leverage the VS Code tooling. I will show the process which I believe is the easiest one to get started with.

Jump start camel projects with the new yeoman-based project generator

Jump start camel projects with the new yeoman-based project generator

The Red Hat Fuse Tooling team recently broadened its focus from a cross-platform, single-IDE (Eclipse) approach to a cross-platform, cross-IDE approach (Eclipse, VS Code, Che), starting several concerted efforts to provide tools that work across platforms and development environments. Supporting VS Code has become a priority that led us to explore using the Yeoman framework for project and file generation to provide developers a way to jump start their Fuse/Camel development efforts.

This article describes the Yeoman framework and the new Yeoman-based Camel-Project generator the Fuse Tooling team created, and it shows how to install and run the generator.

XML Language Server and the VSCode Extension

XML Language Server and the VSCode Extension

 

For my first and ongoing project as an intern at Red Hat, I’ve been working alongside Angelo Zerr and Fred Bricon to develop an implementation of the Language Server Protocol (LSP) for XML. Through the XML language server,  developer tools like VSCode and Eclipse receive XML syntax highlighting and checking, code completion, document folding, etc.  At the moment we appear to have the most feature rich XML language server implementation, including our Schema-based support which is an essential XML feature that we are most proud of. Combined, all these features make it much easier for developers to work on any type of project involving XML, from the comfort of their favorite editor or IDE.

Apache Camel URI completion: easy installation for Eclipse, VS Code, and OpenShift.io

Apache Camel URI completion: easy installation for Eclipse, VS Code, and OpenShift.io

Discoverability and ease of installation of Apache Camel tooling based on the Language Server Protocol has been improved. Manual download and installation of binaries is no longer necessary!  For the Eclipse desktop IDE and the VS Code environment you can now find and install the Camel tooling directly from the marketplaces for each development environment.

Camel Language Server is now also available in Red Hat OpenShift.io!

In this article, I will show you how you can install Camel tooling via the marketplaces for Eclipse and VS Code.  I will also show how to enable Camel tooling in your OpenShift.io workspace.

Java Language Support for Visual Studio Code has landed

Java Language Support for Visual Studio Code has landed

Java language server is an implementation of the language server protocol for Java. If you recall, language server protocol provides a common way for editors and IDEs to integrate with language smartness providers. By design, all of the language tooling magic happens on the Java language server, and can provide same level of smartness to tools that support the protocol. In fact, we are working with communities such as Eclipse Che to make this server available for their tools.
