Today we migrated (nearly) all active users from the CODESYS Forum. This is the first step to the full integration of the CODESYS Forum into CODESYS Forge. We created all users which we could automatically import. Some were not possible because of username constraints, which are more strict in CODESYS Forge, than they were in the CODESYS Forum.
As already published on the CODESYS Forum, we will migrate the whole forums content 27-28 Februrary 2020.... read more
Those of you, who are active Forum users might have read it already. We are launching an Android App to access CODESYS Forge in the near future. This App is currently in development. The brave of you can also check out a pre-alpha version of the App.
We give you access to the mobile version of the CODESYS Forge Website. We don't provide any additional functionality.... read more
You can love them or hate them, but hash tags can be very handy for some use cases. The main reason, why we now support hash tags is, that they can be used everywhere. So for example, Discussions don't support labels, but they support hash tags.

The ticket tool is after the source browsers, the second most important tool of CODESYS Forge. For smaller projects, it holds a personal todo list for the maintainer.

Because it is so important, it got two improvements to make the daily workflows a bit smoother.... read more
This is again a small update, but the infrastructure opens us a huge amount of possibilities.
You might notice, that you get small blinking dots from time to time in the menus on the page. Those are informing you about updates in those sections. So in fact they inform you that there are changes on the marked page since you last visited it.
For sure this feature makes only sense when you are logged in. And at the moment, it is only enabled for this news page. But we might extend this in the future.... read more
This night, we got an Update of Allura, the platform behind CODESYS Forge, to version 1.12.0. This version fixed a security issue in the global search. Before it was possible to see some of the private posts, sites or commit messages through the search. This is fixed now.
Beside that the main improvement was in the field of "user mentions". I would say, that this feature became mature after this release.... read more
Since a while we integrated a continuous integration solution into CODESYS Forge. The integration goes slowly, step by step. The concepts are described here.
While the integration for our users is still in a beta phase, the automatic extraction of the source code from CODESYS projects and libraries is already working.
So if you don't configure anything special, the source code of your projects and libraries will be shown in the source browser. To see the code, just click on a project or library in the source browser. ... read more
