Orion - An Open Source Platform For Cloud-Based Development By Eclipse Foundation


Orion is an open source project under the Eclipse top-level project. Orion's objective is to create a browser-based open tool integration platform which is entirely focused on developing for the web, in the web. Tools are written in JavaScript and run in the browser.

Unlike other attempts at creating browser-based development tools, this is not an IDE running in a single tab. Links work and can be shared. You can open a file in a new tab. Great care has been taken to provide a web experience for development.

Orion components are individually consumable and examples of this are Mozilla Firefox Scratchpad, Scripted Editor. All the components of Orion together can be viewed at the public facing OrionHub site where anyone can create an account and try Orion out.

All you need is a modern web browser, from there you can write code using a great editor, link to a repository, create a site.  Develop your software where ever you go. It'll be there, in the cloud, right where you left it. Just login from a web browser on desktop, laptop, tablet, at an airport, on a bus or even in your office.  Orion incorporates leading edge client technologies together to make an extensible tooling platform. Others fork components like the editor to create their own tooling solutions.
