Giger8 template for Eclipse plugins developed in Scala.

This template produces 5 Eclipse plugins:

  • the plugin itself
  • the plugin.tests fragment
  • an Eclipse feature
  • an Eclipse source feature
  • an Eclipse update-site

The projects can readily be imported inside Eclipse. Additionally, you have maven pom files based on Tycho, enabling command line builds.
