News from Eclipse Che Google Summer of Code 2016 projects
Summer is getting hot in Eclipse Che ecosystem. We have more and more contributors joining this new Che adventure such as Red Hat and SAP. Everyone is working hard on Che improvements such as implementing the Language Server Protocol and multi-container workspaces.
But they are not the only ones working this summer.
Earlier this year Florent and I submitted few ideas to the Google Summer of Code. The GSoC is a program organized by Google to encourage students to be more involved open source projects. Students get a well paid summer job and open source projects get new promising contributors. As part of the Eclipse Foundation, Eclipse Che will be part of this year’s Google Summer of Code. Codenvy and Serli will also participate in this 2016 edition as Eclipse Che GSoC project mentors.
EclipseCon France 2016 - Language Server Protocol, Eclipse Che and Commit Strip
This blog post will be soon available in French on the Serli blog site
Once again, I’ve spent a great week at EclipseCon France in Toulouse. Thank you Eclipse foundation for this fantastic event! This year I’ve learned a lot and had very interesting discussions about Eclipse technologies.
To me, the star guest at the conference was the Language Server Protocol. Brought to us by Microsoft TypeScript and its Language server. It was featured in 3 presentations:
A Universal Eclipse IDE
This year I am participating to the Google Summer of Code as a mentor for the Eclipse umbrella organisation. I have submitted few ideas about Eclipse Che and Eclipse Flux and some of them have been selected. As far as I’m concerned, I am going to mentor the subject “Pair Programming with Eclipse Che” which will consist in improving an existing prototype I have demo-ed in various developer conferences Github pair programming che extension
Few days ago, my padawan Randika encountered issue to set up his Eclipse IDE on his latest Ubuntu. He had issues with GTK3 and weird performance problem. So I first suggested him to run Eclipse IDE inside a Docker container. It worked fine, but as we are not living in the same location, I couldn’t help him efficiently for advanced IDE configuration such as GWT super dev mode. I posted to our Gitter chat room “Let’s try something fun” and we started launching Eclipse IDE inside an Eclipse Che Docker workspace and hosted by Codenvy beta. When I posted a screenshot of this few hours later, I’ve got a lot of interactions on Twitter from the community: “Say whaaat?”, “WTF? :)”, “got some more info ? :)“, “worth writing a blog post how to set this up?”
