Setup instruction showing how to get openFrameworks running in Eclipse IDE. I have tested from a clean install with both the github master branch of openFrameworks and the 0073 packaged version.

looks great! i've been always kind of dubious about adding eclipse as an option because even if it's really powerful it's also very complex and the cdt support for makefiles is somehow buggy. the instructions look really good though and simple enough.

perhaps if you could add a comment at the beginning advising that for beginners it would be easier to use codeblocks.

I'll add the initial comment.

There is one problem with the packaged version at the moment, the .project files are not in the zip file. To fix this I added a step to get the .project files from github. Perhaps this document should only be added to the site if these files are included. Then I can remove the extra step of pulling a .project file from github if you downloaded the tgz version.

yes i think it's better to add this for the next version, then i'll add the .project to the linux packages so people can choose among any of the possible IDEs

ok that's great, then I'll take that extra step out. It will make the process just a little simpler.

hey kyle, this isn't ready yet till we have the project files in next release as we commented in previous comments.

can you revert the commits and resend the PR? or perhaps if it's easier remove the link from the download page and send a PR to add it when 0.7.4 is released

in general if it's linux or android related please let me merge it to be sure that it's correct

I left the info on how to get the .project files in the FAQ section, just as a record incase someone tries this with an older tgz file after we add the .project files. Let me know if you need met to do anything.

hey, sorry arturo -- i read through the tutorial and it looked complete to me (due to the notes about generating the project files). but in the future i'll let you merge it :)
