    I would really like to use the DevStyle plugin, but most of the systems I work on are air-gapped, so using the update site directly is not possible. Is it possible to get DevStyle as a zipped package/site for offline installation?

    Hello @clift.

    When on a machine that is connected to the net, you could make a mirror of our update site. You can then copy this mirror to your offline machine, and then install using the Local button in the “Add Update site” dialog to install from this site.

    To make a mirror, execute the following commands from within the folder containing eclipse.exe, where mirrorfolder is the destination into which you want to mirror the site.

    eclipse -nosplash -verbose -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.metadata.repository.mirrorApplication -raw -source https://www.genuitec.com/updates/devstyle/ci/ -destination mirrorfolder
    and then
    `
    eclipse -nosplash -verbose -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.artifact.repository.mirrorApplication -raw -source https://www.genuitec.com/updates/devstyle/ci/ -destination mirrorfolder`

    see: https://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox_p2_Repository_Mirroring for more details. Note, progress is not displayed during the mirroring operation, please wait for the eclispe process to naturally exit each time.

    Hope this helps.

    That should work great!

    I was not aware of this trick. It would have come in handy a few times over the years. Thanks for teaching me something new!

    An update and some notes for future readers:

    I initially ran into some trouble with SSL certificates, which I assumed was due to my work proxy. It turns out it was an issue resolving the certificate authority for the HTTPS addresses. If you run into this issue (PKIX path creation failed), try using http:// instead of https://.

    Also, the first time it ran, it failed to grab a few required JAR files, namely the news and CSS JARs. Once I re-ran it, I was able to zip the contents of the mirror folder (optional, but easier to send to the IT folks) and install the plugin from the zip file.

    Thanks again!

    Hello, I was looking for an offline archive and was directed here, however, it unfortunately appears the mirror site method is also blocked by my organization, looking around I’m having no luck finding an archive – would this perhaps be something I could generate on my end of I have it installed elsewhere?

    Hi,

    You could generate the mirror site on a different network if your organization doesn’t allow it. You can then copy the mirror folder to your machine and install it using the Local option in the Add Update Site dialog.

    Hope this helps.

    Hello Swapna, I’m sorry – I don’t think I understand your solution?

    Hi,

    Sorry for not being clear. If you have problem generating the mirror folder in your machine, then you can generate that folder in another machine which allows it and copy that folder in your machine and use it to install the plugin.

    Do let us know your limitations for the above solution.
