To add a new feature to eclipse you now write a short script, hook it into the UI and use it immediately without even restarting. It has never been so easy to extend Eclipse functionality.
Furthermore we pushed the project to eclipse and found a home at the e4 incubator. If you ever were interested in scripting your IDE or RCP this is your chance to contribute, propose features or simply try it out and amaze us with what you can do with EASE!
- Wiki: http://wiki.eclipse.org/E4/Scripting
(not much there yet, but stay tuned)
- GIT repository: http://git.eclipse.org/c/e4/org.eclipse.e4.scripting.git
- While the wiki is not up to date you can still look at the eScript pages for a short how-to
Or even better:
attend my "Scripting, baby!" session at EclipseCon Europe next Wednesday at 5pm.
