August 28, 2020 | by
Here are some highlights from the past week on our streaming channel over the past week. Remember, we're streaming daily, and that you can even ask questions to the streamers. That's what it's all about, after all: helping you with your day-to-day OpenShift work.
Building the Perfect Tools Container
A lot of the trouble folks have with the transition to thinking about containers comes from the fact that the usual toolbox of Linux tools aren't included in container images, nor are they rolled into the slimmed down host Linux. Instead of trying to shoehorn necessary work and maintenance tools into existing into the host or into an application container, the preferred method is to create specific containers for those development tools. To this end, the toolbox container project, formerly known as the fedora-toolbox can help you build out a solution to your tooling problems.

And, of course, this is all available in an open source manner, through the Eclipse Che project. If you're looking to build out the most customized and unique IDE experience possible due to incredibly weird business demands, Che is your ticket to the wonderful world of distributed, browser-based development. It's also great if you just need to give your team a Java IDE in the browser with access to all the behind-the-firewall goodies and services.
