The Tekton Project, which was announced in March after branching off from the Knative project, is creating excitement as a Kubernetes-native CI/CD pipeline tool.
It offers the flexibility and agnosticism that Kubernetes is celebrated for and is positioned to become the first open standardized engine for executing pipelines. Although the project is still in the early stages of development, we couldn’t wait to start making it easier for developers to jump on the Tekton train. Therefore in this article, we’ll take a quick look at the Tekton Pipelines extension and how to use it.

During the past months, several noticeable new features have been added to improve the developer experience of application based on Apache Camel. These updates are available in the 0.0.20 release of Visual Studio (VS) Code extension.
Before going into the list of updates in detail, I want to note that I mentioned in the title the VS Code Extension release because VS Code extension is covering the broader set of new features. Don’t worry if you are using another IDE, though, most features are also available in all other IDEs that support the Camel Language Server (Eclipse Desktop, Eclipse Che, and more).

It is a common practice to test software from the user’s perspective before releasing it. With this assumption, I have set out on a quest to find a VS Code extension with automated end-to-end tests. My quest ended in failure. Naturally, a lazy person like me then asked: “Why would nobody try to automate this?” It turns out that automating this was, in fact, quite difficult.
My quest then became finding a solution that would enable developers to do just the thing. It is my pleasure to announce that no more hours need be wasted on this menial, manual activity. Enter the aptly named
vscode-extension-tester: A framework that lets you create automated tests for your VS Code extensions and launch them with ease. All you need is an

The new release of Red Hat OpenShift 4.2 has many developer-focused improvements. In that context, we have released a new version of OpenShift Connector 0.1.1, a Visual Studio (VS) Code extension with more improved features for a seamless developer experience. Developers can now focus on higher-level abstractions like their application and components and can drill down deeper to get to the OpenShift and Kubernetes resources that make up their application directly from VS Code.
Let’s take a deep tour of the new features with respect to OpenShift Connector.

We are excited to announce a new release of Red Hat Dependency Analytics, a solution that enables developers to create better applications by evaluating and adding high-quality open source components, directly from their IDE.
Red Hat Dependency Analytics helps your development team avoid security and licensing issues when building your applications. It plugs into the developer’s IDE, automatically analyzes your software composition, and provides recommendations to address security holes and licensing problems that your team may be missing.
Without further ado, let’s jump into the new capabilities offered in this release. This release includes a new version of the IDE plugin and the server-side analysis service hosted by Red Hat.

When I was introduced to Apache Camel K a few months ago, I was amazed at how quickly developers could write and deploy an Apache Camel-based integration on Kubernetes. We immediately started work on creating Microsoft Visual Studio (VS) Code-based tools to make things even easier.
Now, with our new Tooling for Apache Camel K by Red Hat extension, we add support for Camel K in your IDE. To illustrate the tools in action, let’s start with a simple user story inspired by an article that Nicola Ferraro wrote a few years ago (Creating a Telegram Bot in 5 minutes with Apache Camel).

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?
