Eclipse Run Helper

Your Eclipse run history, from the keyboard

What does it do?

It gives you easy keyboard-driven access to the last few things you ran.

Great. How do I install it?

Just grab the plug-in here and put it in the dropins folder of your Eclipse installation.

How do I use it?

Press Ctrl+Shift+F11 for Run, or Shift+F11 for Debug. Then:

  • A number from 1 to 5 to select an item from your history
  • The letter "t" to re-run your last (JUnit) test run

I've got a problem. Help!

If you've found a potential bug, or would like to request a feature then the best place is the issue tracker. If you want to discuss something then feel free to send me a message.

What's next?

I've got a few ideas for what I'd like to add, probably in this order:

  • Restart web server (Tomcat/Jetty/other)
  • Open run/debug configuration dialogs
  • User defined keybindings to specific launch configurations
