Abstract

Scripting is about easy customization, and automation of common workflows.

While most editors, IDEs and office tools support some sort of scripting, there is no common approach at Eclipse. Some projects exist but it's very fragmented. This effort is about getting together and unifying the efforts, such that we all get to a better solution.

Success Statement: Provide an installable scripting framework from Eclipse.org which satisfies most needs, such that fragmented efforts are united again.

Status / News

Sep. 2013: The Eclipse Scripting initiative has been revived with strong input from Polarsys, TOPCASED, Atos, Airbus, Infineon and others. Requirements have been collected, and work is proceeding on merging the Eclipse Monkey / TOPCASED approach with the EScript implementation from Infineon. A weekly technical meeting is held on Wednesday 11.00 CET. Goal is a first release end of October. There will be a presentation at EclipseCon Europe 2013. See recent mailing list postings and meeting notes for more details.
