Eclipse Cloud DevTools Digest - November and December, 2022

Wednesday, January 4, 2023 - 12:51 by John Kellerman

Things slow down a bit around the winter holidays so I decided to combine a November and December summary.

Eclipse Cloud DevTools Contributor Award: Marc Nuri for JKube leadership

But not Marc! The Eclipse Cloud DevTools contributor award for last month went to Marc Nuri at Red Hat for his continuing leadership of JKube, and more specifically for the new JKube Remote Development feature. Congratulations Marc and thank you for your contributions!

Theia 2022 Summary

Jonas, Maximllian, and Philip provide an excellent summary and video of activity and accomplishments in the Theia project for 2022, including the first community release, support for detachable views and support for a configurable toolbar.

Eclipse Theia 1.31.1 and 1.32 Releases: News and Noteworthy

Theia releases 1.31.1 and 1.32 were released in November and December, including drag/drop copying of files, support for detachable terminals and Monaco editor update. For more detail, see the 1.31.1 and 1.32 New and Noteworthy blogs.

Interesting Work Underway: Support for Multiple Openvsx Deployments in Theia

Paul Maréchel of Ericsson has work underway to enable Theia support for multiple Openvsx deployments. There is related work by Aart van Baren last year to add the ability for one Openvsx deployment to mirror another. These enhancements enable use cases where an organization needs to curate a set of approved extensions for internal use and/or, for security requirements, deploy an 'air-gapped' instance of Openvsx.


TheiaCon (November 30 - December 1, 2022) was a hugh success. Videos are now available on the Eclipse Foundation Youtube channel.

CDT Cloud Blueprint

In a separate blog, Jonas, Maximllian, and Philip introduce us to CDT cloud Blueprint. CDT cloud Blueprint is a web-based IDE that enables you to build custom and/or domain/specific IDEs for C and C++.

JKube 1.10 is Available

Marc Nuri, in his blog, details the recent 1.10 release of JKube, including an exciting preview of remote development support.

Cloud Developer Annual Survey

The Eclipse Cloud DevTools Working Group is inviting everyone in the cloud development ecosystem to add their voice to our annual global Cloud Developer Survey. The more people who complete the survey, the more accurate the picture we can present back to the industry. The last day for completing the survey is Friday, January 12.
