IDE add-on is available for Enterprise Edition only.
eXo IDE is a powerful Web application which provides a rich environment for developing different content, scripts and services. It runs in a browser and allows you to access and work with files online from anywhere. eXo IDE offers:
Remote File System through the Virtual File System, including Browsing, File Locking, File Searching and Versioning.
Code Editor with syntax highlighting for many popular languages and advanced features, such as Code Auto-complete, Code Outline and WYSIWYG Editor for HTML.
Tools for developing client side applications including technologies, such as Netvibes Widgets, Google Gadgets and Groovy Templates.
Development of server-side applications, running, debugging, and interaction with the client side via REST Service.
Before working with eXo IDE, make sure that you have at least one of the two roles: administrators and developers. eXo IDE offers most of the same functionalities for them. However, only administrators can deploy their REST services on a common environment and use a kind of "sandbox" to deploy them.
Install IDE add-on by the command: addon install exo-ide-addon. The installation procedure of IDE is the same to that of another add-ons, as detailed in Installing/Uninstalling add-ons, Administrator Guide.
After installing the IDE extension in eXo Platform, you can access it by clicking → on the top navigation bar.
The IDE page is displayed and allows you to perform all its functions.
