Eclipse Cloud Dev Tools Working Group happenings for March, 2022; logi.CLOUD, STMicroelectronics, Theia, and Cloud IDE Days.

Theia Adopter Story: logi.CLOUD, a modern engineering platform for industrial automation

logi.CLOUD is an innovative and cloud-based engineering platform for industrial controllers. The project is based on Eclipse Theia and adopts several other Eclipse technologies, such as Eclipse GLSP and Xtext. In this blog, we will take a detailed look at this adopter project, its use case and how the Eclipse ecosystem and the adopters mutually benefit from each other.

Is Theia the next Generation of Eclipse IDE and RCP?

In this blog and this blog, Jonas, Maximilian & Philip take a close look at Eclipse Theia and its modern web-based technology stack. They make a compelling case and ask whether it can be considered a worthy  successor of both Eclipse desktop and Eclipse RCP. Spolier alert: They think it can.

Eclipse Cloud DevTools Contributor Award: Documentation for Eclipse Theia and Eclipse GLSP

The Eclipse Cloud DevTools contributor for March goes to STMicroelectronics for significantly contributing to improving the documentation of Eclipse Theia and Eclipse GLSP. Congratulations and thanks for your contributions!

Cloud Tool Time - Developing Textual and Graphical Languages for VS Code / Theia

Come see Miro Spönemann discuss the open source project Langium and show how to integrate that with Sprotty to create a VS Code extension contributing a textual language with generated graphical views.

We are now scheduling Cloud Tool Time webinars for the 2022 season. If you are interested in presenting, or have a topic you would like to have discussed, now is the time to let us know. Please use this form to submit your proposal. You can also check out previous Cloud Tool Time sessions here to learn more about the tools in our growing ecosystem. Every episode is featured on the Eclipse Foundation YouTube channel.

The Eclipse Foundation Launches New Working Group for Software-Defined Vehicles

On a relate note and perhaps of interest to our embedded community, The Eclipse Foundation, along with multiple industry leaders, including ETAS, Microsoft, ZF, and others, announced the formation of the Software-Defined Vehicle (SDV) Working Group, a new formal initiative focused specifically on automotive innovation. Multiple projects have already been proposed and work on these elements has already begun.
