Hey there, I'm Ignacio a guy that loves to do code and to eat pizza. Who likes to run, surf and live near the sea, I've been working at Genuitec for the last couple of years on Secure Delivery Center, that makes me also an Eclipse geek and p2 user.

Eclipse Neon Android Package

Now that Eclipse Neon is just around the corner, I was pleased to see that Eclipse for Android Developers is back. We’ve all waited a long time for it! This package bundles the Andmore-Eclipse Android Tooling—a fork of Google’s ADT (Android Development Tools) plugins for Eclipse. These are maintained separately from Google’s code line and the package includes the MOTODEV Studio plugins upgraded to work with ADT. This kind of effort is always appreciated by the Eclipse community.

Eclipse Neon JavaScript Package

The other surprise was the Eclipse IDE for JavaScript and Web Developers. This one was not available on Eclipse Mars and I think it will be one of the most popular distributions. It also contains a lot of improvements with Neon, including essential features for the modern web developer such as basic ECMAScript 6 support, the ability to run NPM tasks from inside your IDE, and Bower support—just to name a few! Of course if you do web dev in Eclipse, make sure to add the free Webclipse add-on. It takes Neon and makes it superb for web development. Another feature that has been evolving with Eclipse releases is the Eclipse Marketplace. With Eclipse Neon there are multiple changes on that project, most of them allow developers to interact with the Marketplace by exposing public API’s. With these changes “Eclipse Plugin Developers” can easily expose their plugins inside the Eclipse IDE for easy installing—this completes the circle between Eclipse Packages and the community.

Let Us Hear from You!

I feel these new packages are definitely a good addition to the Eclipse ecosystem. I look forward to seeing how these tools evolve over time and how people adopt them in their day to day work. If you have any comments or questions, we would love to hear from you @Webclipse on twitter or via the Webclipse forum. If you’re not already subscribing to our blogs, why not do it today?
