In this article, we introduce the embedded special interest group (embedded SIG), hosted by the Eclipse Foundation. The embedded SIG is an open collaboration of embedded vendors and service providers, with the goal of strengthening the open source ecosystem for building web- and cloud-based tools used for embedded development. The SIG provides the structure for participants to coordinate efforts, share insights and collaborate on technical initiatives and standards.

In this article, we introduce the Eclipse Graphical Language Server Platform (GLSP), a technology to efficiently build diagram editors for web- and cloud-based tools. These diagram editors can run inside an IDE, such as Eclipse Theia or VS Code; or can be used stand-alone in any web application. Eclipse GLSP fills an important gap in the implementation of graphical editors for web-based domain-specific tools. It is an ideal next-generation solution for replacing traditional desktop technologies such as GEF and GMF. Eclipse GLSP is a very active open source project within the Eclipse Cloud Development Tools ecosystem.

Recently I wrote about the momentum happening in the Eclipse Theia project. In this post, I want to highlight some good reasons to adopt Theia as your IDE solution. The core use case for Theia is as a base upon which to build a custom IDE or tool. However, if you are a developer looking for a great tool to use, you will find some motivation here as well. The inspiration for this post comes from Theia project lead Marc Dumais’ ‘Why Use Theia?

The first ever Cloud IDE Day was held on May 19th, 2021 as a virtual event. While we do have our ongoing Cloud Tool Time webinars and Cloud Chat Twitch.tv series, for the Eclipse Cloud DevTools Working Group, Cloud IDE Day was our first attempt at organizing a larger scale event. With over 200 registrants, nearly 150 live attendees and an impressive group of speakers that delivered some fantastic sessions, you can expect to see more of these kinds of events in the future.

The Eclipse Theia project was born just 4 years ago. Kudos and thanks to all the organizations that have supported and built the project into the success that it is today. In addition to these original contributors, there continues to be significant growth in the number of companies contributing to and adopting Theia as the basis for their custom IDEs and domain-specific tools. Because of our active and vibrant community, Theia is now a thriving and diverse project — ready to move to the next level of growth and adoption.
Join us for this fun, educational and interactive webinar series, featuring a variety of cloud development topics from community members!
"In our customer projects around the globe, we can observe an increasing demand for web-based and cloud-based tooling….We believe the Eclipse ecosystem is on a very strong path to take and hold the same dominating position for tool building it has on the desktop also for web-based tools in the upcoming decade."
Dr. Jonas Helming, General Manager at EclipseSource
