Where’s your project set? Getting Eclipse sources easily!

As you know, Eclipse can use “Team Project Set” files (.psf) to magically import code from various repositories.¬†Thanks to Karl (294842), we committers can now set a project set url in our project’s metadata. This will link to a .psf-file from our project’s About page.

Here’s how this looks for Eclipse RAP:

project_page

After saving this file, you can use the “Team Project Set” wizard to download the latest RAP sources with a few clicks:

wizard_1

wizard_2

wizard_3

wizard_4

Now go and bug your favorite projects to provide a project set ;-).

Kind regards,
Elias.

    Cool. That was a fast reaction after a tweet. ;-) Thanks to you Elias and Karl.

  2. Jeff McAffer says:

    Awesome. I opened https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=295033 to allow the psf URL to be entered directly in the import dialog. Fewer clicks to getting started with a project.

  3. Jens v. Pilgrim says:

    Cool! I have added the project set to the GEF3D project as well, actually there has already been a bug report by Madhu about that :-) Thank you Elias and Karl.

  4. Denis Roy says:

    This is really cool, thanks for opening the bug. I think you should send an email to the committers list to inform them of this feature.

  5. @Denis: done, thanks for the tip.
