Bixby Developer Center


Version 7.0.0

Updated: Aug 1, 2019

Welcome to v7.0.0, the 19O release of Bixby Developer Studio. This release brings a brand new Editor experience! We've made some improvements to the Debug Console, Settings, the Simulator, Stories, and other miscellaneous improvements.


All editors across the application now use the Monaco Editor project (the code editor which powers VS Code). The Monaco Editor provides a better out-of-the box feature set and better customization. Here are a few highlights:

  • Indent guides
  • Collapse and expand regions for code folding
  • Mini map
  • Multi-select

With the new editor, we've updated some of the editor shortcuts and added a setting to disable autosave.

Debug Console

Debug Console now provides view settings for grouping inputs.

You now have the option to turn on or off Autosave for the editor. By default, Autosave is on.


The Simulator now more closely emulates the real Bixby device experience for users.


We've updated the look and feel of the Step Editor; the Step Editor now displays the kind of step you are looking at. This gives more freedom when editing stories.

Story Dropdown for Steps


  • We have upgraded from Electron 3 to 5!
  • We removed the DEPRECATION LOGS section from the Errors & Warnings sidebar view. Deprecation errors and warnings now show in the tree with normal errors and warnings. You can differentiate between deprecation logs and non-deprecation logs by the DEPRECATED: label prefix.
