Frameworks in Studio

Hi, I would like to use another framework in Studio, like React or Angular.

Is it possible?

Unfortunately it's not possible.

Fortunately, there is a lot of ways to work with modern frameworks. And no reasons to use Studio for such cases.

You have to use VSCode, where you will get support for JavaScript/Typescript out of the box. And you can also code ObjectScript there as well. So, you could do everything in one modern editor.

This is definitely possible, although it will be very painful :)  You can use Studio to edit any sort of flat files on the OS, and Studio has been used for years to edit .js and .css files.  You can use Studio to edit the source files for your React or Angular app, but you will then need to use the CLI in order to build your app for testing (you could also roll your own server side source control hooks to do this).  So if your organization is currently locked into Studio, this can be done but you'll need to do extra work to make it work.

If you have the flexibility, I would strongly recommend that you leverage VSCode rather than Studio for this.
