The release of the professional toolset is part of Samsung’s partnership with Codenvy to make it easier to build, deploy and manage applications for the Internet of Things, Codenvy said.
The ARTIK IDE is the first open source cloud IDE platform dedicated to IoT application development. It is based on Eclipse Che, a community-driven open source cloud IDE, workspace server and plug-in platform.
Eclipse Che has had 100,000 downloads. Codenvy contributed to its development, along with SAP, IBM, Microsoft, SmartBear, Red Hat and Samsung, Codenvy CEO Tyler Jewell said.
Samsung’s ARTIK is a proprietary hardware module. The software stack that runs on the module is open source.
“This is a unifying movement and a simplifying movement. It is designed to take a professional IDE platform like Eclipse and make it suitable to the targeted development approach in IoT,” Jewell told LinuxInsider.
Samsung announced the ARTIC platform last year. It is a development platform designed to help both makers and professionals build IoT systems.
