Eclipse is working on new web-based development tooling called Orion. Orion is a browser-based open tool integration platform which is entirely focused on developing for the web, in the web. The project is currently in the early stages of development, with a code editor, file and folder navigation and Git integration already created, and a debugger in the works.
For Orion to make sense as a way to develop software, it needs to get browser-based tools like bug tracking, build monitoring, code change reviewing and documentation readers to work together. Orion will be something that works well with existing tools out there on the web. Ideally, you'd want something similar to the tight integration you typically get from a classic IDE, but without building another IDE. The design has been based on well-proven web architectures - using hyperlinks to navigate between different tools and resources, making data accessible in a RESTful way, and using web technologies like HTTP, JSON, OAuth, OpenID and others. There will be continuing work to find ways to integrate tools that have been built into coherent workflows that solve real world web developer problems.
Join members from the Orion team to see demos, learn about the future direction of the project and find out ways you can contribute.
