Hello! here is the Genuitec Twitter chat recap! in case you missed it ? Great! Its been a while since we last chatted about @Webclipse. Why don’t we start off with some catching up! #genuitecchat
Q1 What’s new in @Webclipse and @MyEclipseIDE land? A1 The highlight of recent releases has been #TypeScript support for #Eclipse, as promised in 2016 CI 6, and improved in CI 7 A1 We support #TypeScript editing with auto-completion, validation, automatic building, navigation, etc
A1 We also added #DevSearch, allowing you to search from within #Eclipse easily for an error
Q2 Great to hear about TypeScript – does that include support for 2.0? #TypeScript2 A2 Glad you asked! #TypeScript 2 support is coming in 2016 CI 8 of @Webclipse & @MyEclipseIDE A2 As usual, all the #TypeScript config is tsconfig.json backed & we support the newer types, typeRoots, lib, … properties
Q3 #Angular2 was coming shortly after CI 6 — is it close? A3 We chose to bring the CI 7 release forward to fix user-reported issues and add a few requested #TypeScript issues early A3 You can already do #Angular2 development in CI 7 with #TypeScript support; significantly improved tooling is coming in CI 8
Q5 How will I deploy and debug #Angular2 apps from #Eclipse? A5 Run ‘ng serve’ from the command line or use the project node in the Servers view – we’ll detect the deployment
A5 Debugging #Angular2 applications is a one-click process. You can even place breakpoints in #TypeScript files.
Q6 @AngularCLI integration in an IDE – how does this work? A6 Good question. Our wizards use the @AngularCLI to generate new projects or #Angular2 elements,ensuring standards compliance A6 Our Terminal+ view ensures the right versions of @nodejs, #NPM & @angularcli are used by setting up the CLI environment
A6 The Terminal+ is project specific,you can have multiple tabs/project & the context switches based on the selected project
Q7 Any tips for getting started with #Angular2 in @Webclipse or @MyEclipseIDE in upcoming 2016 CI 8? A7 Sure! 1. Create new #Angular2 project. 2. Check “use template” box. 3. Run As > Angular CLI Project. 4. You’re done! A7 There are a lot of great tutorials online though we’ve built out a learning center to help you get started A7 Hit us up with a Direct Message on Twitter to get early access to #Angular2 development in #Eclipse
