March 31, 2021 | 1 min Read

Do you want to build a domain-specific tool running in the browser? Do you require features such as form-based editors, tree views, graphical editors, model comparison, model validation, model analysis or even code generation? Then read on.

Maximilian recently gave a talk as part of the Eclipse Cloud Tools Time webinar series about how to build web-based modeling tools and domain-specific tools using EMF.cloud, Eclipse GLSP and Eclipse Theia. In case you missed this, here is a recording of the talk:

If you want to have a detailed look at the example tool “coffee editor” that is shown in the talk, including the sources and an online demonstration, please see the EMF.cloud project page. Furthermore we published an overview article on how to build web-based tools with Theia, GLSP and EMF.cloud. For more information about the underlying technologies, please see the EMF.cloud website and the Eclipse GLSP website. Finally, in case you want to start your own web-based tool project and need support in designing or implementing your solution: EclipseSource provides services and consulting around web-based tools, Eclipse Theia, Eclipse GLSP, EMF.cloud and related technologies such as VS Code or Eclipse Che. Get in contact with us and let us know how we can support you!
