What is new on Kogito Tooling from Foundation Team perspective — April/May/Jun 2020

Recently, we had a lot of cool new features on Kogito Tooling added by Foundation Team. Those features are distributed on Kogito Tooling latest releases!

This post will do a quick overview of those. I hope you guys enjoy it!

Visual Code Store Extension Release

Last month, the VS Code team released its custom editor as an official API, and we were finally able to publish our editors on the VS Code Store.

We have now four published artifacts on the store:

At Red Hat Store:

At KIE Store:

  • Kogito Bundle: an extension that groups all our extensions for Kogito.

At this point, the bundles are just pointers to our extensions, this means that every time that you download our bundle, in fact, you are also downloading DMN and BPMN editors extensions. In the future, this bundle could potentially contain improved features, stay tuned! See the full post for details.

Business Modeler Desktop Preview

We released a new import piece of our tool belt, the Business Modeler Desktop. This modeler is a multi-platform standalone application that enables you to quickly create and edit DMN and BPMN assets on your Desktop. See the full blog post for details.

Business Modeler Hub Preview

We also released a new piece of our tooling strategy, the Business Modeler Hub Preview. A single place where you are just one click away from all our tooling channels. See the full blog post for details.

Business Modeler Preview Enhancements

We introduced some awesome UX tweaks on our Business Modeler and we expect it will improve even more your experience using it. See the full blog post for details.

Enhanced Keyboard Shortcuts On Kogito Tooling

We released a new Keyboard Shortcuts API. It gives editors the power to add custom reusable keyboard shortcuts that work in all channels! For the existing editors — BPMN, DMN and SceSim — we maintained the same mapping, but we did some under-the-hood enhancements that will make the experience even better. See the full blog post for details.

Exporting diagrams as GitHub gists

Users can now export their DMN and BPMN diagrams as GitHub gists on the Business Modeler. See the full blog post for details.
