Customize front-end UI

June 12, 2019 at 11:04am
Hi all, I seen in documentation below : https://www.theia-ide.org/doc/Composing_Applications.html We can build our own IDE, is it possible to use a different web library to change the wall front end ? Thanks for your help

Do you mean to use different library to phosphor for desktop like layouting?
Hi Anton, I mean actually maybe I'm wrong but you use React to generate the front end ? Is it possible to Rebuild the front end with another framework? Maybe I can keep the actual front end and create an extension that will communicate directly with the backend ? I don't know if it's clear...?

You can unbind all existing frontend widgets and create own widgets using another framework. Depending on what you are trying to achieve it can be quite a lot of work.
