What is on the table
This is a very exciting new version as it brings:
- Support for packages
Yes, from now on, it is easy to create your own custom components and compile & install these for use at design-time. The package system is similar to how you can use packages to install components in the Delphi IDE or Lazarus
- Support for workspaces
With workspaces, now you can have multiple projects in a folder and activate and select which project to compile/run/debug.
- Support for using the entire FNC component suite
As our entire set of FNC components is ready for use in web client applications, the new package support in TMS WEB Core for Visual Studio Code enables to install all TMS FNC components in the TMS WEB Core for Visual Studio Code IDE. The latest FNC registered version updates released last week contain all the required packages for this.
- Brings the framework up-to-date with latest version as available in TMS WEB Core for Delphi/Lazarus v1.7
The TMS WEB Core framework that comes with TMS WEB Core for Visual Studio Code is now in sync and up-to-date with the latest release of TMS WEB Core for Delphi. This means that all new components and component improvements are now also available for Visual Studio Code users. This includes the new USB components, local file access components, new Firestore dataset capabilities, extensions to grids, web socket connection improvements and much more... One important note though, the Miletus application type is not yet in our release for Visual Studio Code release but scheduled for the next release.
Developing your own custom components is for sure a very powerful way to fully apply a RAD component based and in a sense also low-code approach to become productive at developing web client applications with TMS WEB Core.
Our chief architect José Leon Serna explains in this video how you can use packages and start writing your own components.
We held a webinar (on our TMS Web Academy platform that was by the way developed entirely with TMS WEB Core for Visual Studio Code) with a sneak preview of TMS WEB Core for Visual Studio Code v1.3 earlier this week, so you can see the replay and see the package support, FNC components in the IDE and learn from the discussion and Q&A with attendees.
TMS ALL-ACCESS customers and customers of TMS WEB Core for Visual Studio Code, login on our website and under Account / My Products, you will find the beta download of TMS WEB Core for Visual Studio Code v1.3. Enter your credentials to activate the product. If you also have the full FNC component suite, open the FNC web specific packages from the FNC product folder opened in Visual Studio Code and activate and install these packages.
From here, you'll have the full power of TMS WEB Core + custom packages + well over 200 FNC components to start developing exciting web client applications!
We are now testing, polishing, fine-tuning till we can officially release TMS WEB Core for Visual Studio Code v1.3.
Your feedback is crucial to achieve the highest possible quality for the release as well as for steering all future developments. Our team is eager to learn about your experiences and work on it! Contact us via regular email or the support center!
