+# Liferay IDE

+## Source Code
+All of Liferay IDE's source code resides in this current repository. Liferay IDE
+*releases* are built from this repository and the output of the build is an
+Eclipse style update-site that can be used to install the Liferay IDE plugins
+into a user's Eclipse installation. Freshly built updatesites will reside in
+the target folder of the `build/releng/com.liferay.ide-repository/` module.
+## Quick Start
