This is a Specs2 extension for the ScalaTest plug-in for ScalaIDE.

Specs 2 is a redesigned version of Specs using functional components (see a great introduction by Eric Torreborre).

Building on your own

It is a simple Sbt project, you can buid it by the following command:

$ sbt package

You can find the generated Jar file in the target folder.

Importing the project into Eclipse

First, you need to install sbteclipse, it requires sbt 0.11.3 at least.

Then generate the required .project and .classpath files for Eclipse by the following command:

$ sbt eclipse

Note that the generated files contain absolute paths, that is the reason why they got ignored in the .gitignore file.
