CodeMix & Angular IDE: Migration Plan

Published February 11, 2021 | Updated June 1, 2021

Nearly three years ago, we shipped the first release of CodeMix, a plugin that allows Eclipse developers to take advantage of the wide array of language and framework support available in VS Code and its large family of extensions. Over several dozen releases, we have enjoyed providing the Eclipse community with the modern web support it was previously lacking.

With growing support for Language Servers in the Eclipse ecosystem, it is no longer viable for us to continue CodeMix development. CodeMix still provides solid value to many users of current and past versions of modern web languages and frameworks through its support for Code extensions. Therefore, CodeMix and Angular IDE (based on CodeMix tech) will continue to be available, and will be supported through our forum and ticket systems, however, there will be no new CodeMix or Angular IDE releases.

Great News—There’s an Alternative

The latest release of our flagship IDE, MyEclipse 2021.5.24, bases its editors on Language Server technology, providing an exceptional coding experience. 

Features like validation, content assist, hover info, outlines, refactoring, navigation and even code analysis are serviced by the language server protocol, bringing rich support to the following editors:
  • HTML/XHTML
  • JavaScript/JSX
  • JSP
  • TypeScript/TSX
  • CSS, SCSS, SASS, LESS
  • JSON
  • YAML/RAML
  • XML, XSL, XSD, DTD
In addition, built-in wizards for Angular and React simplify development with these frameworks. Future MyEclipse releases will add support for other popular frameworks and languages, with Vue next on the list. If a technology you need isn’t available in MyEclipse yet, there is likely an Eclipse plugin that can do the job until it gets added.

Note: MyEclipse 2021.5.24 is no longer compatible with CodeMix since it supersedes the CodeMix features. However, you can still download CodeMix separately and install it into earlier versions of MyEclipse if you prefer.
