CodeMix & Angular IDE: Migration Plan
Published February 11, 2021 | Updated Mar 28, 2022
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.
Note: The latest CodeMix download is compatible with Eclipse 4.6 (Neon) through 2020-06. A patch is available to extend support up to 2021-09. CodeMix is incompatible with Eclipse 2021-12 and later versions.
Great News—There’s an Alternative
The latest release of our flagship IDE, MyEclipse 2022.1, bases its editors on Language Server technology, providing an exceptional coding experience. This technology has been an integral part of MyEclipse since version 2021.5.24.
- CSS, SCSS, SASS, LESS
- XML, XSL, XSD, DTD
In addition, built-in wizards for Angular and React simplify development with these frameworks. MyEclipse 2022.1 adds support for Vue development as well—see our modern web page for more details. 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 and more recent versions are not compatible with CodeMix since they supersede CodeMix features. However, you can still download CodeMix separately and install it into earlier versions of MyEclipse if you prefer.
