Why are we sunsetting the Profiles Hub?
Our vision for Yatta Profiles was to allow developers to install and deploy their development stack quickly and easily. Based on the Oomph open-source framework, we developed an installer and a plugin with a hosting service for the Eclipse IDE.
Our vision has not changed.
But we have realized that our focus on the Eclipse IDE was too narrow: Wherever possible, developers should be able to define and deploy their tech stack independently of their chosen IDE. In this regard, containerization and other technologies are much more favorable than those used by Profiles back in 2015.
In order to pursue our original vision in the most effective way, we have decided to do a major revamp of our Profiles tooling. (In fact, we are planning a complete reimplementation 😉) As part of this process, and to focus our limited resources, we will be discontinuing the Profiles Hub on 13 October 2022. Enterprise hosting will continue as agreed with our customers until further notice.
You can continue using Profiles
Although you will no longer be able to search for and use Profiles on the Hub, we have ensured you can continue to download, install and use Profiles.
Download the Launcher
You can get the Profiles Launcher from the following links:
Download the Eclipse plugin
You can find an up-to-date version of the Eclipse plugin at the following update site: https://marketplace.yatta.de/update/profiles/client
Share Profiles with teammates
Share Profiles using the Export and Import function. Exporting creates an Oomph file you can send to teammates. When they import your Oomph file, your Profile will be available for them to use.
Once you have logged in, you can export all your existing Profiles at any time using the Launcher.
The export and import functions are available in both the Launcher and the Eclipse plugin.
