Live Preview with CodeLive
This release of MyEclipse introduces CodeLive. Live Preview is the first feature included in CodeLive, with additional features coming in future releases.
To use Live Preview, you will now need to turn on CodeLive per server, and then select the files you want to use CodeLive. The first time you view you web project in a browser, you can select the files that will utilize CodeLive. This change in Live Preview optimizes performance by injecting only the necessary files.

Bootstrap Your App Development with Templates
If you ever wanted to quickly get started with a great looking UI for your web application, but didn’t know how to get started—we can now help with our new template support!
Select a template from the Template tab in the dashboard and simply follow the wizard to get a Java EE application, bootstrapped with the chosen template. You can then easily customize the template as per your requirements.
While the current set of templates are based on the Bootstrap framework and produce Java EE applications, as we add support for additional web frameworks and project types to MyEclipse, we’ll be expanding our template support accordingly. Beyond Bootstrap, we could have Angular or React templates (for example) and in addition to Java EE projects, we could support Node.js, PHP, Static Web projects, etc.
Do give our template support a spin and tell us what you think!
- Several fixes have been made to the code Outline and Quick Outline views. The Outline view will follow you as you code and it is now easier to navigate with the Quick Outline.
- JSDebugger—Source maps will now work when debugging a Node.js 6.x application.
Terminal, Snippets View, and Docker Commands
Having a hard time remembering complex CLI commands? The Snippets view and the Terminal have both been enhanced to allow snippets representing commands to be dragged and dropped into the terminal for immediate execution or quick editing. You can even DnD commands from a text file!
If you’re a Docker user, you’ll like the set of Docker commands that we’ve added to the Snippets view.
