Eclipse Theia Vscode

We have just launched a fresh new Kogito Tooling release! On the 0.8.5 release, we made many improvements and bug fixes.

We are also happy to announce a new PMML Scorecard Editor and, also, that our editors are now available on Eclipse Theia Upstream (built from theia master).

The VS Code repository on GitHub includes code that is licensed by MIT, but the VS Code distribution is released under a proprietary Microsoft product license. VS Code extensions. The Eclipse Theia plugin protocol has been implemented in an extensible fashion and conforms to the VS Code API. This will allow some VS Code extensions to run inside of Theia. The API support will determine which extensions are compatible. For example, it is currently possible to use the SonarLint VS Code extension from VS. Oct 31, 2019 The Eclipse Theia IDE is an open source platform to build web- and cloud-based tools, as an alternative to VS Code. However, Theia is compatible to VS Code in terms of extensions. In this article, we describe how to install and use VS Code plugins in the Eclipse Theia IDE and Eclipse Che (which uses Theia as the default IDE).

This post will give a quick overview of what is included on this release.

PMML Scorecard Editor (alpha) hits VSCode Market Place


We are happy to announce that we have a new VS Code extension: PMML Editor. It allows you to create and edit PMML 4.4 (.pmml) Scorecard files.

This new editor is in the alpha stage, and we are looking for feedback from the community. We hope you enjoy it!

In practice, this means that from now on, our BPMN, DMN and editors can run on Eclipse Theia upstream (you can build it from theia master and run), take a look on this demo:
