With the App Dev Pack available on Windows and IAM server out of beta, HCL and IBM have done the work to go beyond the anonymous access to Domino data from Node.js.

Eclipse Theia: Initial Thoughts on A New IDE

Last week Stephan Wissel pointed me towards Eclipse Theia, an open source cloud and desktop IDE platform written in TypeScript. This provides the VS Code experience in a browser.
