I am interested in the difference between a “frontend” theia plugin and a “backend” plugin. This question is about “plugins” only, it is clear for extensions.
I browsed through the code a bit and my current conclusion is that the only difference is the logging, but that the two types are processed exactly the same at the moment. VS Code extensions are processed as backend plugins by default.
Am I missing something?
