Acceleo can be downloaded and installed in a number of ways. If you have an existing Eclipse installation and simply wish to install Acceleo in it, installing through the update site is the easiest way. If you'd rather install a new Eclipse with Acceleo, you may want to take a look at the facilities provided by the amalgamation project.
Note that whatever the installation procedure you choose, examples are available from the menu right-click => New => Examples => Acceleo Plug-ins.
Install with the Amalgamation project
- Download the latest EPP modeling bundle
- Open the discovery UI
- Select Acceleo and "Finish" the wizard
