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! The list of improvements along the way is too long to list, but here are some highlights! For a complete list of updates, refer to the Delivery Log. 

Rename Refactoring

Now available for CSS, JavaScript, TypeScript, and more! In cases where the Code OSS extension supports rename, we support it too. Introduced in CI 2018.8.15.

Parameter Hints

Parameter hints show documentation corresponding to the parameter being entered, making it easy to switch between different function signatures. Introduced in CI 2018.5.24.


Snippet placeholders are visually highlighted, making it easier to fill in all required variables. Introduced in CI 2018.5.31.

Outline Support

The addition of the Quick Outline, makes it simple to navigate your project. Introduced in CI 2018.5.9.

Including symbol information in the Outline view was a much-requested feature. Introduced in CI 2018.4.30
