Eclipse Cloud DevTools Contributor Award for 2023 goes to EclipseSource and TypeFox

The Eclipse Cloud DevTools Contributor Award for the year 2023 was to two remarkable companies, EclipseSource and TypeFox, in acknowledgment of their enormous, continuous, strategic, and sustainable contributions to the Eclipse Cloud DevTools ecosystem.

Adopter Story: Code RealTime

In an earlier article, I wrote about Code RealTime, an innovative tool for creating stateful, event-driven real time applications in C++, created by HCL and IBM and using the strengths of the Eclipse Cloud DevTools open source ecosystem, including Eclipse Theia and Eclipse GLSP.



Markus Rudolph of TypeFox provided a nice, instructive article on atting a React webview using Langium to a VS Code extension, resplendent with code examples.

Unveiling the Power of Open VSX


In this article we discuss the success we've seen in the extensions hosted at Open VSX, an open source registry for VS Code extensions, providing a decentralized and community-driven alternative to the Visual Studio Code Marketplace.
