No, Eclipse support is not currently a planned feature (intellij IDEA only). Perhaps after the first major release I’ll find some bandwidth to begin developing a plugin.

It would be really nice to see an Eclipse plugin at some point. A lot of the people I work with still haven't switched.

Is there anything that can be done from the community to help this along in any way

Sure. . . any takers? ;)

Seriously, it would be great if someone out there with the qualifications, the desire, and the time (the vast amount of free time) it would take to build out a Manifold plugin for Eclipse would step forward. Anything is possible I suppose.

I suppose I could have at least started the Eclipse plugin by now, but I swear almost any other feature on my pile seems like a better investment of my time, esp. given the IDE market share trends. "Should I implement Operator Overloading or start on Eclipse." It's a no-brainer for me, perhaps it shouldn't be?

Fair points lol our shop develops eclipse plugins by trade as a platform so if the need were to be pressed / interested in the shop ramps then I'd like to look at it. Not for nothing, from 1 to 10 how hard was the IntelliJ plugin

Heheh. What I meant was... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oj_aid1LUF0

Ok the Manifold plugin is an 11 in dog years. Some parts of Manifold are easier to build in IJ than in javac, while others are other worldly. In most cases it depends on how much of the feature is bytecode oriented i.e., there is no compilation in the IJ plugin, just type information and AST/PSI manipulation. But the IJ plugin makes up for this with subsystems that handle change -- compilers don't have to deal with change, but IDEs do. Anyway doing Eclipse plugins I'm sure you're aware of all this. The Manifold plugin shouldn't exist, it's at that level.

I don;'t mean to scare you off with this... so don't get me wrong. It's a doable project, but just barely.
