Linux Tools Project

Revision as of 17:18, 23 February 2009 by (Talk | contribs) (Articles)

Welcome to the main wiki page for the Eclipse Linux Tools Project. If you use Eclipse on Linux and are interested in promoting the adoption of Eclipse as an application development environment for the Linux platform, we urge you to get involved and help us out.


The goals of our project are:

  • Create more Linux Development Tools for Eclipse, for example:
    • GNU Autotools support
    • GNU ChangeLog support
    • RPM Spec file editors
    • Valgrind and OProfile integration
    • and more...
  • Simplify the creation of Eclipse packages (RPM and deb) for Linux platforms, and standardize the process for doing so across multiple distributions of Linux.
  • Connect the Eclipse Update Mechanism with the Linux multi-user system model.
  • Work within the open source community to promote adoption of Eclipse on Linux
  • Plans for GNU Autotools support
