I have a React Application that is a drag-and-drop site-editor. It allows adding components (e.g Text, Buttons) and dragging them across the “stage”, and has many features. It also allows adding & authoring code. I am exploring the idea of replacing the code editing experience and file navigation (and perhaps more features) with theia. The frontend application is React-based, and currently - each part of the IDE is a separate component (i.e there is a navigator component, a monaco-based code-editor component, etc.). I would like to explore the idea of replacing my custom solution with theia, is that achievable?
In order to achieve that, I would need a few things:
- To be able to take “parts” of the theia application and attach them to different parts of the dom
- To be able to integrate theia components inside the existing application, and not the other way around. After reading a bit, it seems like usually theia is the app, and it can be customized/extended. Is it possible to flip the paradigm and integrate theia’s lego pieces inside an existing app?
I hope my question is clear, don’t hesitate to let me know if it isn’t
