Join the CodeMix Journey

The CodeMix journey began in early 2018, as we set out to give Eclipse developers timely access to all the best languages and technologies. Our first stop was a Technical Preview, where we gave Eclipse developers the power of VS Code, along with access to the rich catalog of Code OSS extensions, opening a whole new world to the Eclipse developer. 

This was just the beginning. With each new feature added along the way, CodeMix has continued to pick up steam—even making it to the top 10 downloads on the Eclipse Marketplace! But that’s not the end of this journey, we’re just getting started. The best is yet to come! 

What’s New in CodeMix?

We’ve continued to listen to user feedback to make CodeMix even better. Here are a few things we’ve brought you since the CodeMix 2.0 release. 

  • Live Chat lets you connect directly to a CodeMix developer from within your IDE
  • Projects lazily registered for significant performance improvements—especially on Windows
  • A private extensions directory improves compatibility with VS Code
  • A redesigned extension manager for an improved user experience
  • New wizards simplify making a new TypeScript interface, class, or enum

CodeMix Improves Your Coding—It’s That Simple!

Don’t just take our word for it. Take a look at these side-by-side comparisons that show how much easier your coding life is with CodeMix.

A Look Back

Here at Genuitec, we have always worked to help developers in their chosen environment versus dictate environment. With that goal in mind, we created CodeMix as a way to bring more options to Eclipse without changing how you work. Our first release on April 2, 2018 was a technical preview. The initial response was phenomenal and CodeMix quickly evolved with weekly updates and fixes.

CodeMix is packed full of powerful features! There’s a long list of improvements that have been made along the way—check out some of the highlights!
