Is Theia exactly an IDE?

June 7, 2020 at 11:50am
Theia has functions that very much alike vscode but vscode describe itself as a text editor while Theia as a platform to build IDEs. Can anybody make this clear?

Theia is a framework or platform to build cloud and desktop IDE-like applications, is customizable, extensible, and also supports VS Code extensions. It makes use of some common components as VS Code such as the Monaco text editor and uses both the language-server-protocol (LSP) and debug-adapter-protocol (DAP).
