Boost Your Spring IDE with CodeMix

If you’re developing Spring applications in Eclipse, you’re probably using MyEclipse, or Spring Tool Suite (STS)—but Spring development isn’t just about writing Java code. Whether you’re using Spring Boot and a framework like Angular or Vue.js, Spring MVC with JSPs and JSTL, or just working with [hard]core Spring, CodeMix significantly boosts the development experience in your Spring IDE.

CodeMix is an Eclipse plugin that adds support for a number of frameworks, souped-up editors for dozens of file types, and advanced debugging and deployment capabilities that allow you to focus on your application, without worrying about your tools. CodeMix is compatible with Eclipse-based IDEs and tools so you can continue working in the environment you are accustomed to.


Get an awesome JavaScript development experience in Eclipse, with little to no configuration required.

JSON is one of the most common formats for web/API-returned data, and YAML files are great for externalizing Spring configurations. CodeMix supports schemas for both JSON & YAML files—you get both content assist, and even documentation when dealing with known specifications. Of course, we have the basics like validation, navigation and formatting covered.

Frontend Frameworks

If you’re not using Spring MVC, there’s a good chance you’re using a modern framework to power your frontend. CodeMix sports superb TypeScript support for the most recent TypeScript versions, and it has first-class support for several frameworks like Vue.js, Angular, and React, among others.
