EASE - Eclipse Advanced Scripting Environment

What is EASE?

EASE integrates script language interpreters directly into your Eclipse application. It allows to automate common tasks, extend the IDE and to create dedicated dialects of a script language. You can write, execute, debug and integrate scripts in a single Eclipse instance.

Features

  • JavaScript support
  • Jython support
  • UI integration
  • interactive / scripted mode
  • customizable DOMs

Try it

Script developers: If you want to write scripts in either JavaScript or Jython without writing your own DOMs then the nightly update site is the first place to go: http://download.eclipse.org/e4/updates/ease/eclipse-e4-ease-nightly/

Script integrators: You want to write your own modules? Start by reading E4/Scripting/How to write a module

EASE developers / early adopters: Want to hack into the source code? All you need is provided via Gerrit. See the How to contribute tutorial for more information.
