Eclipse, your way

Recently I found a great website called easyeclipse.org that has many specialized versions of Eclipse. For instance, if you are a Web developer, EasyEclipse Server Java should do the trick for you.

The catch is that they offer versions with the most useful plug-ins pre-configured into the distribution. In addition, you also can download self-installing plug-ins from the website.

PROS

  • Out-of-the-box configuration
  • MacOS, Linux and Win32 automated installation
  • Download, click, install plug-ins
  • Multiple languages versions, like LAMP, PHP, Ruby on Rail, Python, …

CONS

  • Based on rather old 3.1 version

So, that’s it. Let’s just hope they make the migration to 3.2. When they do I will most likely start to use it as my default IDE.

See ya next time!

Update: Cool! EasyEclipse.org’s member Phillip just sent the link to the 3.2 beta preview. Keep up the good job!

    Thanks for the feedback…. we are working hard on a version based on Eclispe 3.2 (there is already a preview available only on the sourceforge page), but we want to make sure that the plugins still work fine on 3.2. Some do need a bit help for that 😉
    Another problem is the difficulty to present two versions on the web site, without introducing too much confusion, but I think we have a decent solution for that ..

    You can check the beta 3.2 based versions here (at your own risks):
    http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=131065&package_id=151180&release_id=409211
    and plugins here:
    http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=131065&package_id=187215&release_id=431600

    Test feedback as bug reports (positive or negative) is welcomed before we release in the open !

    I look forward to see on IRc on freenode #easyeclipse !
