Web UI -https://git.eclipse.org/c/e4/org.eclipse.e4.search.git/

Clone URI - git://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/e4/org.eclipse.e4.search.git

The source code of a sample search provider is under folder /examples in our repo. This can prove very useful if you want to implement a search provider.


  • How to install search console

http://download.eclipse.org/e4/downloads/ -> 0.11 Stream Integration Builds -> Select the latest build you see there.If 404 not found is returned, select next latest build. Click on "online p2 repo link" - that is the update site. When installing from eclipse, deselect "Group items by category". Select "Search Console Master Feature". The master feature includes the framework plus an example search provider, and will soon include the tests and sources.

If you only wish to install the framework, select "Search Console" feature instead.

None, provided your eclipse is not too old. If you find incompatibilities, file a bug.


  • I wish to contribute

You're welcome! Follow the standard drill. It's easiest to open a bug with a patch, or write directly to e4-dev@eclipse.org


  • Why am i seeing search types that do nothing?

Because it's work in progress. These are the compatibility search types, contributed to the org.eclipse.search.searchPages extension point.


  • How can I disable the compatibility object types?

Just deselect theorg.eclipse.platform.discovery.compatibility feature when installing. This is available from integration build I20110630-1005 afterwards.
