Welcome to the first Cloud DevTools Digest of 2023. This first edition covers activities from both January and February.

Help Us Sustain the Open VSX Registry

In February, I published an article on our need to evolve how we fund and govern our Open VSX Registry deployment. If you have a commercial, or personal, interest in this deployment, please be sure to read up. We need your help to keep this property going.

NEW Theia Whitepaper

We're excited about our new Eclipse Theia brief, Why Eclipse Theia Is Ideal to Build Modern IDEs and Developer Tools. Find out how Theia gives developers what they need to build fully customized, next-generation IDEs and tools for desktop and cloud environments.

Sirius and Sirius Web

In three articles, Cédric Brun from OBEO, discusses Sirius and Siruis Web. In the first, he provides a thorough description of the technologies and work required to build a web-based graphical diagramming tool.  In the second, based on a talk at EclipseCon 2022, he demonstrates the integration of Sirius Web and Jupyter notebooks. And in the final article, he recounts the strong release record for Sirius and Sirius Web.


This is a great article about the flexibility of GLSP and its use in the construction of web-based graphical diagramming tools. Included is a link to talk EclipseSource gave on the topic at EclipseCon 2022.

Getting Started with Theia

This article by Jonas, Maximllian, and Philip includes a nice video on how to get started with Theia building tools or IDEs.

Theia Cloud

In another nice article by Jonas, Maximllian, and Philip, they introduce Theia Cloud, a framework based on Kubernetes for deploying and running tools built on Theia. Included is a link to the recording of a session they did at EclipseCon 2022.
