Webclipse is Now CodeMix

After a successful CodeMix technical preview, we are happy to announce the official rebranding of Webclipse 2017 (v1.x) as CodeMix 2018 (v2).

The next gen architecture in CodeMix now includes your favorite Webclipse 1.x features, plus a wide array of technologies from VS Code and add-on extensions built for Code OSS.

CodeMix is free to try, and if you’ve already purchased a Webclipse license, it works in CodeMix. Get CodeMix—the next generation of Webclipse!

Webclipse and, more recently CodeMix, has been invaluable for me. It allows me to concentrate on the task without the impedance of changing development tools just to support different technologies. From excellent Angular support to HTML live previews, it’s a one-stop-shop solution for every web development need at every layer of the stack.

CodeMix Licensing

If you have a current Webclipse personal or commercial license, there’s no need to wait to upgrade to CodeMix. You’re existing license will work—even with all that extra goodness you get in CodeMix. We’ve also added the option for a 30-day license and made changes to our free license.

Annual Personal License

New CodeMix personal licenses are automatically managed via genuitec.com. If you have an existing Webclipse license, your license is automatically migrated to a commercial license to recognize your license key, without any interruption to your workflow.

Annual Commercial License

CodeMix commercial licenses use a license key. If you have an existing Webclipse license, CodeMix uses your Webclipse license automatically.

30-Day Personal License

Don’t need an annual license? No problem! You now have the option to purchase a 30-day license for just $5.

Free Usage

The limited free license in Webclipse has been replaced with an unlimited 45-day trial license in CodeMix—you can really dive into your coding to make sure CodeMix is right for you!

CodeMix: The next generation of Webclipse

As an Eclipse developer, you no longer have to feel like you’ve been excluded from all the fun your friends are having with Visual Studio Code. CodeMix is an Eclipse plugin that gives you access to a wide array of technologies from VS Code itself and add-on extensions built for Code OSS, directly from Eclipse. You’ll enjoy all the enterprise tooling you depend on, like Java and Spring, plus access to all those cool web languages and exciting new technologies you’ve been wanting to try.

It’s the best of both worlds! Coding without limits. Keep coding those awesome enterprise apps, and throw in impressive new stuff—with amazing extensions for languages like Python, PHP, and TypeScript, as well as frameworks like Vue, React and Angular. Or, why not dockerize your app? 

CodeMix is compatible with Eclipse-based IDEs and tools—like MyEclipse, Spring Tools Suite, and JBoss Tools—so you can continue working in the environment you are accustomed to.

Intelligent Code Completion and More

IntelliSense is built in for a number of languages such as PHP, TypeScript, and JavaScript; as well as markup like HTML and CSS. Content Assist suggestions are displayed as you type, based on language semantics and an analysis of your code. In addition, IntelliSense displays the method signature, parameter info, and documentation when available. Experience this same first-class level of IntelliSense for a variety of other languages—like Python, Go, or even Rust—by installing the corresponding language extension.

And there’s more! Code Mining provides valuable context information by displaying the number of references and implementations inline with your code. This works hand in hand with Find References, which lets you quickly view and navigate to references in your code. Add code snippets and Emmet to the mix and you’re coding is practically done for you!


Keyboard Power with Commands

Use the command palette to do just about everything, from opening files to running builds.

Commands are great for navigation between files, when you’re opening a new file by name or locating a class in your workspace. You can also use them to jump to different sections of code within the file you’re editing. They also make performing advanced edits on your current code easier, whether you’re removing unused imports or refactoring code. Finally, use commands to run scripts, builds, or even initiate debugging sessions.

Not having to reach for your mouse as often will give you a huge productivity boost. After using commands, you’ll wonder how you ever worked without them!

Powerful Debugging

As an Eclipse user, you’ve come to expect a powerful debugger. With CodeMix, you get the same robust debugging experience for a plethora of languages and frameworks, many of which Eclipse does not support.

Simply install the corresponding debugging extension and you’re ready to add breakpoints and locate errors in your code.


Extensions add a whole range of functionality—support for new languages and frameworks, productivity enhancements when coding, advanced validation, quick fixes, and even the ability to debug all sorts of applications. This is just a small subset of what extensions can do. Extension packs are included that bundle the best extensions for the most popular languages and frameworks. You can further customize your experience by adding additional extensions, there are thousands to choose from on GitHub.

Extensions can be activated without restarting your IDE—giving you immediate access to new capabilities, without breaking you out of your coding flow.

Build Pipelines

CodeMix utilizes build pipelines, defined via CodeMix augmented tasks, to produce a single authoritative build of your project. With build pipelines, you can utilize external tools for building and validation, and see the results directly in your editor. By using the same tools you would normally use to build your application for deployment, you are guaranteed to have a consistent development experience in the IDE.

CodeMix simplifies build pipelines by automatically creating a template tasks.json file for Angular and TypeScript projects. For other types of projects you can manually modify the tasks.json file to include build pipeline support.


Code navigation capabilities help you get around your code and workspace efficiently.

Commands will help you jump to other classes, or to symbols within the same file. Press Ctrl/Cmd when hovering over symbols to see their declarations inline—you can then click to quickly jump to that location.
