Hello, Please help – I was just about to add some people to our proof of concept full stack angular and now I just saw that you are discontinuing CodeMix and Angular IDE???
I will need to purchase MyEclipse for Spring for them but let me ask now what is the suggested change from Angular IDE+CodeMix?
Has anyone posted other suggestions?
Is there a plug in that is part of MYECLIPSE now that works as CodeMix does?
Are you planning to stop @ Angular 11 with current CodeMix?
Any Help will be appreciated. I want to stay with the MYEclipse Platform – so any help regarding will be beneficial; the other alternative is to train people around webstorm and intellij but would prefer to stick with you pending your reply on how we are to proceed with a full stack solution.
Thank you – ScottApril 5, 2021 at 9:27 am #672549
We aren’t going to be building newer versions of CodeMix, but will ensure that it continues to work in MyEclipse. So a MyEclipse for Spring + CodeMix installation will continue to work (and you do not need a separate CodeMix license for use in ME4S, it’s included with the ME4S license). This install should allow you to to continue development with currently supported versions of Angular in MyEclipse itself.
As far as support for newer versions of Angular, you can install updated Angular extensions from VS Code into CodeMix, but down the line, there is a chance the extension may have updated core engine requirements which will not be met by CodeMix – this is something we will not be able to address.
We will continue to look at ways of supporting modern web development in MyEclipse through other solutions as well, like the Eclipse Language Server project and Wild Web Developer, though admittedly these solutions are not currently at the CodeMix level. I hope this helps clarify our stand and helps you take a decision.April 5, 2021 at 3:26 pm #672564
What are you offering as a company that for full stack development with Java then? Since Wild Web Developer is not at your level?
I used this product as far back as I think 2005. The value add for using my eclipse was the configuration and streamlining ease for those that didn’t want to deal and was focusing on solutions… Now you have CodeMix + Angular Ide — the front end world is clearly using angular as one of a few others like React, Vue, etc… Why not continue to assist in this?
Where is documentation for the flexibility of CodeMix to do what you wrote here?
“As far as support for newer versions of Angular, you can install updated Angular extensions from VS Code into CodeMix, but down the line, there is a chance the extension may have updated core engine requirements which will not be met by CodeMix – this is something we will not be able to address”.
Not having a front end solution will force myself and the team we are looking to do after this extensive groundwork and POC I have been performing is complete to have to go work with Intellij/WebStorm or put the work into VsCode and use for the front end and java even with Sourcetree.
What are we talking with CodeMix in terms of how long it will be viable given the features it has now? Are you going to actively sell it? I am surprised you are giving up on this as I was not aware of anything like it for Eclipse.
Thanks for the follow-up – hopefully it can come faster although everyone was probably off on Friday to be fair 🙂April 7, 2021 at 2:48 pm #672610
While CodeMix and Angular IDE are discontinued, MyEclipse itself will continue to be our full stack offering. Right now you will get Angular, React, Vue, etc. support through the addition of CodeMix to MyEclipse, which does work for current versions of these frameworks. We are working towards a solution that will make these same capabilities a more integral part of MyEclipse (through CodeMix tech, or alternatives). These will be exclusive to MyEclipse – not standalone products or plugins installable into vanilla versions of Eclipse. I’m afraid I do not have further details to share right now.
Regarding VS Code Extensions installed through CodeMix, here is our documentation: https://www.genuitec.com/docs/power-ups/extensions-in-codemix/ Specifically on when an extension will stop being compatible with CodeMix is something we cannot predict, because it depends on the extension author who would specify minimum requirements, as new version are built to support newer framework versions.
Yes, we wish we did not have to stop CodeMix development, but unfortunately after over two years of the product being released, it has proven to not be viable for us to continue.
