CodeMix adds new enhanced functionality to its already impressive toolset, resulting in a stronger Eclipse IDE and a more natural experience for Web & Enterprise developers.

A principle focus was ensuring our users would have a successful and productive experience coding with CodeMix.

Genuitec, a leader in the Eclipse community, announces the release of CodeMix’s Summer Refresh, a major update that includes new capabilities and interface experiences, making CodeMix the ideal tool suite for modern web development for the Eclipse IDE.

Eclipse is known for stellar Java development tools. CodeMix now provides the same best-in-class functionality across numerous web technologies and languages. Together, Eclipse IDE with CodeMix enables Enterprise developers to build next generation applications using the IDE they are already familiar with.

“This release brings new ways to facilitate development beyond just better coding”, said Tim Webb, Genuitec’s VP of Operations. “A principle focus was ensuring our users would have a successful and productive experience coding with CodeMix. For instance, Live Preview is now exposed naturally to users in a way that has never been done before in Eclipse, debugging just works as expected, and modern web servers fit seamlessly into your development flow. As you go through every area of our product, you find it more robust, more natural to use.”

Live Preview 2.0 introduced in this release integrates an intelligent browser right inside the IDE, which is aware of your development context. By leveraging knowledge of the software being developed, CodeMix ensures developers can quickly preview and iterate their application designs. Advanced programmers can optimize flows further to prefill forms or configure which testing URLs are the best for each file they are coding.

A high percentage of new application development is now being done using “modern web technologies” including Vue, React and Angular. These technologies require developers to transition out of historic Enterprise paradigms, and CodeMix facilitates this by detecting and intuitively exposing these servers inside the IDE. For instance, when looking to preview an application under development, Live Preview 2.0 guides the developer to start the server. This same smooth integration is available in other areas of the IDE, including visualizing servers in a Servers view to allow easy management.

The CodeMix Summer Refresh includes other improvements for developers including Code Folding in the editor for better visualization of code blocks, and simplified navigation within and to other files via an integrated Breadcrumb bar. From integrated previewing of Markdown files to significant improvements in debugging, this release is packed with new functionality.
