Chapter 4  Configuring CodeReady Workspaces Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces 2.4 Red Hat Customer Portal

See Section 4.1, “Preparing CodeReady Workspaces deployment from a local registry” for detailed instructions. The main goal of the plug-in broker is to decouple the CodeReady Workspaces plug-ins definitions from the actual plug-ins that CodeReady Workspaces can support. With brokers, CodeReady Workspaces can support different plug-ins without updating the CodeReady Workspaces server. Examples of user runtimes are Node.js, SpringBoot or MongoDB, and MySQL.

  • This section shows how to enable Lombok support in your Java projects.
  • CodeReady Workspaces treats those containers as workspace machines.
  • CodeReady Workspaces uses Keycloak to create, import, manage, delete, and authenticate users.
  • Once you have a devfile configured for your project, you can host it on your source code repository.
  • In the example below, a command is saved to workspace configuration.
  • An error message is returned when the system is out of resources.

For fast feedback when developing, it is recommended to do development inside a CodeReady Workspaces workspace. This way, you can run the application in a cluster and connect to the workspaces front-end telemetry plug-in to send events to your custom back-end. For example, the Java language server (Eclipse JDT Language Server, started by the vscode-java extension) throws an OutOfMemoryException. To configure NuGet in a restricted environment, modify the nuget.config file and use the SSL_CERT_FILE environment variable in the devfile to add self-signed certificates. Athens is a Go module data store and proxy with many configuration options. It can be configured to act only as a module data store and not as a proxy.

See Section 4.3, “Running more than one workspace at a time”. The total amount of RAM that a single organization (team) is allowed to allocate to running workspaces. An organization owner can allocate this RAM however they see fit across the team’s workspaces. The total amount of RAM that a single user is allowed to allocate to running workspaces.

Every workspace gets its own PVC, which means a workspace PVC is created when a workspace starts for the first time. A workspace PVC is deleted when a corresponding workspace codeready workspaces is deleted. The OpenShift Dev Cluster Terraform template will create and configure a new OpenShift cluster on IBM Cloud, preconfigured for team-based development.

Clone a public workspace on by clicking try a factory. The pullrequest mixin requires additional configuration from the attributes object of the project. Enables pull-request workflow where a server handles the local and remote branching, forking, and pull-request issuance. Pull requests generated from within the server have another Factory placed into the comments of pull requests that a PR reviewer can consume.

2. Configuring GitHub OAuth

This allows users to log in with their OpenShift login and have their workspaces created under personal OpenShift projects. The kubeadmin user is not supported, and logging through does not allow access to the CodeReady Workspaces Dashboard. An application that can be defined as a container image or as a set of OpenShift resources can be included in a CodeReady Workspaces workspace. This makes it easy to test applications in the CodeReady Workspaces workspace. If the editor in the workspace supports it, the devfile can specify additional configuration in the editor-specific format. This is dependent on the integration code present in the workspace editor itself and so is not a generic mechanism.

  • The user will be presented with an error message if they try to create additional workspaces.
  • As a developer, you can configure CodeReady Workspaces to create a new workspace each time it accepts a factory URL, or to reuse the existing workspace if a user already has one.
  • The CodeReady Workspaces plug-ins registry is a static website publishing metadata for common Visual Studio Code extensions.
  • A CodeReady Workspaces workspace can be created by pointing the crwctl tool to a locally stored devfile.
  • You can define commands for building and testing your code, or cleaning the database.
  • Each of these deployments uses a container image in the container specification.

Value less or equal to 0 interpreted as disabling this request. Java command line options to be added to JVM’s that running within workspaces. The following section describes the CodeReady Workspaces server component advanced configuration method for a deployment using the Operator. The following section describes advanced deployment and configuration methods for the CodeReady Workspaces server component.

2. Configuring a workspace using a devfile

A user can define extra volumes for each machine in the environment. Docker volumes, Kubernetes persistent volumes (PVs), and persistent volumes claims (PVCs) are examples of volumes. When the deployment YAML files run, they define the CodeReady Workspaces PVCs. You can configure workspace PVC access mode and claim size with CodeReady Workspaces deployment environment variables. Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces is a developer workspace server and cloud IDE. Workspaces are defined as project code files and all of their dependencies neccessary to edit, build, run, and debug them.

7. Running an existing workspace from the user dashboard

Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces can link you directly to the branch and commit for a failed CI/CD (continuous integration/continuous delivery) build, saving diagnostic time. You can create a workspace link for each release, so rebuilding an old environment is as fast as clicking a link. All you need, once again, is a device with a browser and internet access. Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces is built on the open source Eclipse Che project. The default integrated development environment (IDE) of the Che development environment is Eclipse Theia.

User experience

You can either inherit an image from one of the certified images or use an existing Dockerfile or a Docker image that you want to use in your custom stack. You can find Dockerfiles for all stacks in the CodeReady Workspaces Dockerfiles repository. You can get auto-complete for all macros used in the editor. To activate this feature hit this will bring up a menu listing all the possible macros based on what’s been typed. Commands are script-like instructions that are injected into the workspace machine for execution.

1.4. CodeReady Workspaces plug-in registry

The recommendations plug-in will scan files, discover languages and install Visual Studio Code extensions matching these languages. Disable this feature by setting extensions.ignoreRecommendations to true in the devfile attributes. This section describes how to add a Visual Studio Code extension to a workspace using the workspace configuration. Provides a container view that shows all the containers that are running in the workspace and allows to interact with them. A user can extend CodeReady Workspaces by using self-hosted mode, which CodeReady Workspaces provides by default. A complex component type that allows to apply configuration from a list of OpenShift components.

Ask a DNS provider to point the custom hostname to the cluster ingress. The strategy uses one predefined project for all workspaces. By default, only one workspace in the same project can be running at one time.

It runs in a container and can be deployed wherever wsmaster connects. CodeReady comes with some generic, pre-built workspaces (EAP 7, Spring boot etc). Instead of using these, it’s recommended to have a team lead or architect create a custom devfile. They can define the runtimes, project source, and IDE configurations to be used by the whole team.
