Join the CodeMix Journey
The CodeMix journey began in 2018, as we set out to give Eclipse developers timely access to all the best languages and technologies. Our first stop, a Technical Preview, gave Eclipse developers the power of VS Code along with access to the rich catalog of Code OSS extensions, opening a whole new world.
With each feature added along the way, CodeMix has continued to pick up steam—even making it to the #4 most downloaded plugin on the Eclipse Marketplace! That’s not the end of this journey, we’re just getting started. The best is yet to come!
What’s New in CodeMix?
CodeMix gets even better with each release! As part of our final summer update, we focused heavily on keeping CPU usage low. Fixes include optimizations in calculations, updating to TypeScript language services 3.5.3, and more to keep your computer’s fan quiet! You’ll also see a faster startup of Eclipse now that the delivery of the Engine has been optimized to avoid the extraction and extension installation for both upgrade and new installations of CodeMix. More flexible formatting, richer syntax coloring, and automatic tab detection are just a few of the other enhancements you’ll get in the latest release. Check out the delivery log for details.
Although we just released an updated CodeMix, we’re already thinking about future improvements. Is there something you’d like to see? We’d love to hear from you!
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
We love to help developers in their chosen environment, versus dictate environment. We created CodeMix as a way to bring more options to Eclipse without changing how you work. After the release of a technical preview on April 2, 2018, the response was phenomenal. CodeMix quickly evolved with weekly updates and fixes. A long list of improvements have been made along the way—check out some of the highlights!

CodeMix 3 released!
