I am in an environment where I need to use eclipse instead of intelliJ and I want to use codeMix to reduce the difference, but codeMix does not support egoveFramework I wonder if there is a way to force it

Just installed, disabled for too much CPU overload, prompted to restart Eclipse: BOOM! Eclipse broken, empty window, no menus, no tabs, no way to solve from within the application!! If you have a solution please answer!

I'm sorry you're seeing this problem Alessandro.

First off, this isn't the best place to raise problems, as it can sometimes take a few days for comments to appear. It's best to use the support page at the link above.

Please try starting with a new workspace and see if that fixes the immediate problem. If you can try the plug-in again, we can handle the issue on our support forums. If you go that route, please supply as much information as possible and attach the workspace error log.

Thanks for trying CodeMix and I hope you give it another shot. Updates are quite frequent.

After I installed codemix, I can no longer save edited .js files. Kind of a drag! Need to get this off my machine as soon as possible.

That would certainly be a serious limitation with your workspace. Unfortunately, you didn't give a lot of information for us to investigate this (it's not a problem other users have reported and we use the plug-in ourselves but haven't seen the problem). If you'd like to give the plug-in another go, please raise any issues on our support forums where you will get a speedier response and we should be able to resolve the issue. Please include as much information as possible when raising issues and attach the workspace log, which is often helpful.

It would be nice if the JS formatting supported alignment  like PHP does.

and the PHP alignment could use some improvements for more complex scenarios. like double columns per line. Support more assignments like ".="

alignment across minimal switch cases..

and it would be nice if whitespace removing can happen on save instead of only on format. Cuz I don't want to format always, but I do want to remove whitespace always

Thanks for the great comments on CodeMix. Regarding formatting, whilst we may be able to do more on this in future, the formatting is really down to the Visual Studio Code extensions that are installed as these provide the editor functionality. CodeMix provides a way to use that functionality in the eclipse platform. For JavaScript, we install the Beautify extension by default but, for example, you could remove that and install the Prettier extension instead, which may have better functionality for some developers.

So please do browse for other extensions that may suit, and do let us know of the good ones that we could consider to include as standard. I'm sure extension developers would also love to hear ideas from users of their code.

Thanks again.

I'm using CodeMix with Webclipse plugin on Eclipse Oxygen. 

It works great except one important feature. I can't Ctrl + click on elements anymore. 

On HTML files and TS files (opened with CodeMix editors), clicking + hover will display a popup with the element definition but if I click on the element, nothing happens. I am not redirected to the element definition. Sometimes my cursor just moves to the element declaration if it's in the same file but if it's not, nothing happens at all. 

This functionnality works with the Webclipse editors.

This actually only happens on a big project. I have another small Angular project for which Ctrl + Click works perfectly with CodeMix Editors.

I ended up reinstalling Eclipse on my computer (delete all eclipse related folder, download and install Eclipse Oxygen 3, install WebClipse then CodeMix). I imported my Angular project and it seems to work now. I can Ctrl + click on elements and it takes me to the definition in both HTML and TS files opened with CodeMix.

For +15 years I have been developing with Java and using Eclipse, although in the last 18 months I have been moving into modern development using Angular, PHP along with a bit of Python and React. At the beginning with this transition, I experienced frustration in trying to properly run supersets in Eclipse - such as Typescript - as well as for debugging PHP and Python code; mostly because tools and dependencies setup took too many hours for my projects to work, and there was - usually - at least a couple for issues to research in how to fix them. It was a hideous nightmare for me! But then I started to hear – from a fellow developer – about CodeMix as it has a lot of out-of-the-box support for the coding I was developing. So, my first try with CodeMix was with Python as I was running out of time to fix a Python script that was pulling and processing data from a Web service. I got amazed as it is easier to get CodeMix set up into Eclipse and - even better - a lot faster to run and develop with - I got my Python script fixed in less than an hour thanks to the CodeMix debugging configuration! I got so impressed that now I am using CodeMix for my PHP, Angular and React projects as well. To set break-points and walk through variables and values is one of the best great things for me as CodeMix makes my developer life a lot easier. Most likely if you try it out, you will love it too! ^_^

Time-based licensing simply means that when i open an old project, I spend the next week trying to get the environment working - and then forced to reinvest / re-register / re-located keys & logins - only to use the tool for a couple of days for deployment or quick update.

Additionally, its often enountered where the publisher forces an update during the re-reg process & may or MAY NOT be backwards compatible with resusitated projects....

= ClusterF for smaller ops.

Version-based licensing is the way to go... working for atlassian.. once I lock in my environment, I'm not screwed with I move it to another VM 2 years later. I purchase a license that lasts FOREVER with the benefit of 1yr of updates. Those who stay on the cutting edge ( AND use the tool the most ) will contribute more funds out of necessity [&  rightly so due to usage] - those who infrequently use the tool aren't enslaved to the same burden.

This is tantamount to ransomware IMHO.. this said, GREAT tool.

First off, it’s great that you like the product!

Completely understand that different people prefer different models.  By providing a subscription model, we can allow many people to have access at a low price point instead of a higher cost for just a few.  The ability for getting just 1 month for $5 means you can also just get a license for that limited time you need to come back to the project instead of purchasing another year.  I realize perhaps not in exact alignment with your perspective, but we did try to make it accessible!

We also like that subscriptions give everyone access to the latest features they need, unlike version-locked licenses where companies can force a pay-event for users simply by restricting support for Feature X to an upgrade, such as "upgrade for Angular 6 support."
