Feeback Since my first interaction with the Eclipse Dirigible project I was in love with the idea behind it. It seems to be a very robust and reliable platform. At first glance, the site looks clean and simple. The various choice of IDE’s was again something I liked. The ability to develop both on server and client side is very useful in various cases. I have tried testing only simple code in the web development platform and it worked well, despite I struggled to find how to compile it, which is a big flaw for an IDE. Creating and arranging files was also a bit laggy. Typing was supported well, but automatic code recognition and suggestions were tools definitely missing in Dirigible. My overall impression for Eclipse Dirigible is positive and on a scale of 1 to 10, I would give it a 7. Despite being well supported and mostly robust Dirigible still needs speed improvements and new tools. – Konstantin Simeonov
