ws data model

Environment recipe can also have content instead of location, if recipe type is dockerfile, compose or openshift:

"recipe": {
  "type": "compose",
  "content": "services:\n db:\n  image: eclipse/mysql\n  environment:\n   MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD: password\n   MYSQL_DATABASE: petclinic\n   MYSQL_USER: petclinic\n   MYSQL_PASSWORD: password\n  mem_limit: 1073741824\n dev-machine:\n  image: eclipse/ubuntu_jdk8\n  mem_limit: 2147483648\n  depends_on:\n    - db",
  "contentType": "application/x-yaml"


ws projects

Project object structure is quite simple, source.location and source.type being the most important parameters. There are 2 importer types: git and zip. New location types can be provided by custom plugins, such as svn.

In the example above, a project does not have problems and mixins. If a project is misconfigured or missing sources, it will be marked with a problem (error code and a message explaining the problem).

A mixin adds additional behaviors the project, IDE panels and menus etc. Mixins are reusable across any project type. You define the mixins to add to a project by specifying an array of strings, with each string containing the identifier for the mixin.

Mixin ID Description


Initiates the project with a git repository. Adds git menu functionality to the IDE. If a user in the IDE creates a new project and then initializes a git repository, then this mixin is added to that project.


Enables pull request workflow where server handles local & remote branching, forking, and pull request issuance. Pull requests generated from within server have another Factory placed into the comments of pull requests that a PR reviewer can consume. Adds contribution panel to the IDE. If this mixin is set, then it uses attribute values for project.attributes.local_branch and project.attributes.contribute_to_branch.

The pullrequest mixin requires additional configuration from the attributes object of the project.

The project object can also include source.parameters, which is a map that can contain additional parameters e.g. related to project importer

Parameter name Description


Used for projects with type zip. When value is 'true', the first directory inside ZIP will be omitted.


Commands can be both tied to a workspace and an individual project. In the example below, a command is saved to workspace configuration:

Here’s how commands can be saved in project configuration:

Runtime object is created when a workspace is in a running state. Runtime returns servers URLs (internal or external, depending on server config). Interested clients, like User Dashboard and IDE use these URLs.
