Eclipse Wild Web Developer 0.1.0 is the first release of Eclipse Wild Web Developer.
It relies mostly on external bricks of "smartness" (TextMate grammars, Language Servers and Debug Adapters) that are plugged in the Eclipse IDE using the appropriate frameworks provided by Eclipse Platform, Eclipse TM4E and Eclipse LSP4E.
The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".
No architectural issue.
Wild Web Developer can be seen as a competitor of Eclipse WebTools, and particularly of JSDT. But it's much superior at usage and the design of Wild Web Developer and the "principles" of development makes it more sustainable (see below).
This project is heavily based on reusability of the components it leverages, and a lot of effort is put in placing the work in upstream components whenever is makes sense rather than enriching the integration itself.
Wild Web Developer doesn't provide much new UI/UX itself and instead extends the UI/UX already provided by the Eclipse Platform and other upstream components.
WIld Web Developer doesn't produce any standard.
It relies on bricks implementing th Language Server Protocol and Debug Adapter Protocol pseudo-standard, and on TextMate files. Actual support for those standards is provided by Eclipse LSP4E and Eclipse TM4E projecs.
