Extending Eclipse Che developer workspaces using different IDEs (integrated development environments) enables:

  • Re-purposing the environment for different use cases.

  • Providing a dedicated custom IDE for specific tools.

  • Providing different perspectives for individual users or groups of users.

Eclipse Che provides a default web IDE to be used with the developer workspaces. This IDE is completely decoupled. You can bring your own custom IDE for Eclipse Che:

Bringing custom IDE built from Eclipse Theia
  • Creating your own custom IDE based on Eclipse Theia

  • Adding Che-specific tools to your custom IDE

  • Packaging your custom IDE into the available editors for Che

Bringing your completely different web IDE into Che
  • Packaging your custom IDE into the available editors for Che
