[Project is deprecated, we suggest to use VSCode version of Ionide instead]


It's part of Ionide plugin suite. In-editor preview of web applications.


ionide-webview allows the user to override the default conventions used to run and preview web applications. To do so You need to create an .ionide file in the root folder of Your project opened by Atom. The configuration file uses the TOML language.

Here is the default configuration values used if the .ionide file doesn't exist or some entry is missing:

linuxPrefix = "mono"
command = "packages/FAKE/tools/FAKE.exe"
host = "localhost"
port = 8888
script = "build.fsx"
build = "Serve"
startString = "listener started"
parameters = []
startingPage = ""
  • linuxPrefix - command used as prefix on Linux / Mac - usually sh or mono

  • command - path to FAKE.exe

  • host - address of webpage displayed in WebPreview - usually localhost

  • port - port of webpage displayed in WebPreview (also passed to FAKE as environmental variable)

  • script - FAKE build script passed to FAKE - usually build.fsx

  • build - FAKE build target executed to start WebPreview

  • startString - string which needs to be printed out in standard I/O to let know WebPreview to display webpage
