- Go to Eclipse Installer and install one of the big ones (avoid the installer)
- PDT is good but there are instructions below to bolt on any of the three - so anything goes with your starting choice
- install into development/eclipse folder (be careful not to install to eclipse/eclipse, if so just move and fix eclipse.ini)
- Run and select this as the default workspace, do not prompt again: /home/m/development/eclipse-workspace
- Install PDT
- Install WTP
- Install CDT
- Close eclipse and update the settings folder to point to the common shared location (make sure the development/config repo is available)
- Review the eclipse scripts to save/restore eclipse settings, it's nasty - keep looking for better ways to share settings across installations
- use shared eclipse settings, to avoid problems like this.
ln -fs /home/m/development/config/common/home/m/development/eclipse-workspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.runtime/.settings/* .
- Import all the existing projects that you need (A better Trader, Hang The DJ, etc.). You can import existing projects from ~/development, easy peasey!
- Install the terminal plugin so you can run CI right in eclipse. Just drag the "install" button there to the eclipse toolbar.
- To view/change customized keys:
Shift+Ctrl+j customize keys even further! :-)
Other things that might help:
- Set up automatic refresh:
Preferences > General > Startup and shutdown > Refresh workspace on startup
Preferences > General > Workspace > Refresh automatically
- put ~m/development/eclipse/eclipse.ini into config
