Eclipse Theia 1.0 Emerges as VS Code Alternative

Started by Ericsson and TypeFox, Eclipse Theia has been in development since 2016. The goal of the project is to have an extensible platform to enable both cloud and desktop IDE tooling. Theia is already at the core of multiple IDEs, including the cloud-native Eclipse Che IDE, the Arduino IDE, and the online Gitpod IDE for GitHub and GitLab.
