What we're about

The Virtual Eclipse Community MeetUp ("vECM”), is a meeting place for the Eclipse community, dedicated to the discussion and discovery of Eclipse technologies.

Learn first-hand about Eclipse projects, working groups, best practices, hacks and tips n’ tricks for the adoption and usage of Eclipse technologies.

Stay tuned for local and virtual events, as we invite our global community of Eclipsians to participate in the discussion.

Eclipse Theia - the new platform for developer tools | vECM

The MeetUp will be held on Google Hangouts and you will be able to watch the live stream directly on YouTube. This is a virtual meetup occurring at 11AM Eastern Time (8AM Pacific Time, 5PM Central European Time). For help with your timezone calculation, refer to this: https://time.is/compare/1100_11_September_2019_in_ET/PT/CET JOIN THE WEBINAR HERE: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/sep11_19_vecm Join the conversation: #VirtualEclipse // ABSTRACT Eclipse Theia is approaching its first major release later this year. Time to have a closer look at what it offers and how it works. In this presentation you will learn all about Theia, how it's used in the industry today and how it might be useful for you. We will dive into features it provides, its extensibility model and how it compares to the classic Eclipse IDE and Microsoft's Visual Studio Code. This session is for you, if you have been working on tools based on classic Eclipse or you are generally interested in IDEs and other developer tools. // BIOGRAPHY Sven Efftinge is initiator and co-lead of Eclipse Theia. He's also co-founder at TypeFox, head of product for Gitpod.io and generally involved in developer tools for more than a decade. Sven lives and works in Kiel, Germany, and enjoys spending time with his two boys. //GET SOCIAL Subscribe: https://www.youtube.com/user/EclipseFdn Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/EclipseFdn Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/eclipse.org/ Join us on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/36807/ Tag us: #EclipseFdn

Diagrams in web and space with GLSP | vECM

This talk is for you! Web-based and browser-based tools pose new challenges to the architecture of language support. The language server protocol (LSP) has become very popular for text-based editors. Separating the UI of a tool from the actual language logic provides great flexibility on the client and server side. The Graphical Language Server Protocol (GLSP), a new Eclipse project, follows are very similar approach to enable the same benefits for graphical, diagram-based editors. In this talk, we introduce the overall concept, demonstrate the existing GLSP editor client based on Sprotty, explain how to implement your own GLSP server and therefore, your own diagrams. Additionally, we highlight how and when to use the approach in your custom tool and how to embed it into Eclipse Theia. Finally, we showcase the flexibility of the approach by rendering diagrams, which you might have never seen diagrams before, on an AR device in space :-) // BIOGRAPHY Philip Langer is a software architect and general manager of the EclipseSource office in Vienna. He has many years of experience working with several modeling technologies of the Eclipse ecosystem and is a consultant to customers in these areas. His current main focus is the development of domain-specific modeling and engineering tools, including graphical modeling, model diff/merge with Git, as well as web-based modeling tools. Also, he is the project lead of Eclipse Graphical Language Server Platform (GLSP), as well as EMF.cloud and a committer on EMF Compare, Eclipse Sprotty, and Papyrus. Besides, Philip is the author of more than 50 publications of peer-reviewed journals, conferences, and workshops in the area of model-based software engineering. //GET SOCIAL Subscribe: https://www.youtube.com/user/EclipseFdn Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/EclipseFdn Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/eclipse.org/ Join us on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/36807/ Tag us: #EclipesFdn

Building web-based tools with Theia and Che | vECM

Needs a location

The MeetUp will be held on Google Hangouts and you will be able to watch the live stream directly on YouTube. This is a virtual meetup occurring at 11AM Eastern Time (8AM Pacific Time, 5PM Central European Time). For help with your timezone calculation, refer to this: https://time.is/compare/1100_30_October_2019_in_ET/PT/CET JOIN THE WEBINAR HERE: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/oct30_19_vecm Join the conversation: #VirtualEclipse // ABSTRACT Do you want to build a web-based tool with more than just a “text editor” - including diagrams, tree viewers for navigation, form-based views, property views and in addition some domain-specific features? Do you also want to enable your domain experts and/or engineers to work with a modern, cloud-based toolchain? Then this session is for you! Eclipse Theia and Eclipse Che are great and innovative platforms for building web-based tools. However, if you want to go beyond adding simple menu items, the available documentation is very limited, since only a few example applications are available to the public. In this talk, we present a comprehensive, open source example tool including a broad variety of features built upon Eclipse Theia and Che. This includes a domain-specific language, a diagram editor, a tree-based editor with forms and a domain-specific analysis view. All in all, we cover the typical scope of a domain-specific tool for engineers including modeling aspects. For every feature of the tool, we introduce the underlying technologies, the architecture, best practices and of course a demonstration. Step by step, we will combine the pieces of a typical modeling tools into one consistent example and also show how they interact with each other. Besides Theia and Che, this also involves other related technologies such as Sprotty, JSON Forms, Xtext, GSLP, EMF.cloud and Kubernetes. Last but not least, the example tool used in this presentation will be publicly available as open source software serving as a blueprint for your own web-based custom tool. // BIOGRAPHY Maximilian is deeply involved with the Eclipse community. He is project lead and committer on several projects, and serves on the Eclipse Architecture Council. Maximilian is general manager of EclipseSource Munich (http://eclipsesource.com/munich), where he is focused on building pragmatic modeling tools - desktop-based and web-based. //GET SOCIAL Subscribe: https://www.youtube.com/user/EclipseFdn Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/EclipseFdn Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/eclipse.org/ Join us on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/36807/ Tag us: #EclipseFdn

Rocketing the greatness of EMF into the cloud with EMF.cloud | vECM

The MeetUp will be held on Google Hangouts and you will be able to watch the live stream directly on YouTube. This is a virtual meetup occurring at 11AM Eastern Time (8AM Pacific Time, 5PM Central European Time). For help with your timezone calculation, refer to this: https://time.is/compare/1100_27_November_2019_in_ET/PT/CET JOIN THE WEBINAR HERE: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/nov27_19_vecm Join the conversation: #VirtualEclipse // ABSTRACT Do you want to know how to apply the benefits of the Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) in the web? Join this talk to learn about EMF.cloud, a new Eclipse project with exactly this goal! EMF.cloud, a new Eclipse project, comprises a set of components that facilitate and simplify the adoption of the Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) in cloud-based applications. Thus, the overarching theme of EMF.cloud is to provide a common home to frameworks, tools, and components that enable EMF’s powerful feature spectrum in cloud deployments. In particular, EMF.cloud intends to utilize the genericity and flexibility of EMF to provide a generic and application-independent toolkit for viewing, editing, processing, transporting, and managing EMF-based models in a cloud-native stack. In this talk, we introduce this new project and demonstrate how its initial components can be used to leverage EMF models in a cloud-based application. This includes a first version of a web-based Ecore tooling, a model server to handle multiple clients and a preview of EMF Compare in the browser. We highlight open challenges when using EMF in the web, but what can be reused efficiently. Moreover, we’d like to invite the vibrant EMF community of Eclipse to join and participate in this project. By its nature, EMF.cloud is open to any software project that aims to address the challenges and specific requirements of using any aspect of EMF in a browser-based setting or cloud deployment. // BIOGRAPHY Philip Langer is a software architect and general manager of the EclipseSource office in Vienna.
