Codenvy teams up with Samsung to further develop IoT


Yet another great news for Internet of Things enthusiasts! Codenvy has announced during the Samsung Developers Conference the first public release of Samsung Artik IDE which will allow developers to build apps for Samsung Artik IoT devices.

“Samsung Artik has opened its doors to the large community built around Eclipse IDEs, bringing more users to its growing set of developer tools. Anyone is now empowered to bring IoT to life with the Samsung Artik IDE. This new IDE, and the support of Samsung and the Eclipse Foundation, opens a new world for developers building products and services that make IoT’s potential a reality,” said Tyler Jewell, Eclipse Che project lead and Codenvy CEO.

According to, the new IDE is based on popular Eclipse Che browser that launched in March 2016. With over 100,000 downloads so far, Eclipse Che has already made the journey of browser-based Artik IDE easier.

The new IDE allows developers to write apps in several programming languages such as Java, JavaScript, Python, C, and C++. Furthermore, developers will have the chance to build, deploy, and manage their application on their desired devices.

“The purpose of this project with Samsung was to create an IDE that was familiar to professionals but could be approachable by Web developers. That means you just opened up your development ranks by 60 million more,"  Jewell said for LinuxInsider. “Though Arduino and Raspberry Pi are being positioned for IoT solutions, I believe Samsung faces greater competition from Intel, with its Quark processors, and Qualcomm's Snapdragon IoT solutions," Jewell added.

As an open source alternative to JetBrains IntelliJ, the most intelligent  Java IDE,  Eclipse Che is supported by popular languages such as Java, Javascript, Go, etc. and features Docker Machines, Workspace Agents, Integrated ps Environment, Cloud IDE, Workspace Snapshots, RESTful Workspaces, Java Intellisense, JavaScript Intellisense, and many more.

"We are building a world where anyone anywhere can contribute to a project without installing software. Essential to this is an on-demand IDE where both the tooling and its workspace runtime can be dynamically provisioned,” according to Jewell. “Existing IDEs are not up to this task: complex per-computer installations, non-portable local host workspaces that lead to 'but it works on my machine' issues, and limited shared collaboration services.’

Che is also a part of the Eclipse Cloud Development top-level project which was launched by The Eclipse Foundation in 2014.  Supported by companies such as IBM, SAP, Pivotal, etc, the Eclipse Cloud Development top-level project aimed to deliver a better platform for software development in the cloud.
