Doing easy customizations and automation of common workflows is the bread-and-butter of pretty much every advanced editor such as Emacs, vi, Slickedit, Textmate or others. Office products such as LibreOffice or the Microsoft suite provide scripting and macro recording as essential capabilities for easy extension. JTAG debuggers such as Lauterbach Trace32 or Greenhills MULTI are even built around scripting.

At Eclipse, lots of efforts around scripting exist but it's very fragmented.

This effort is about getting together to unify efforts.
