Three Ways to Setup Your IDE

To setup your IDE there are three possibilities. Using Oomph is the easiest for newcomers.

  2. Import our PSF file
  3. Setup manually

1. Import with Oomph

Use the Eclipse installer or, if you have already installed Oomph, use the Oomph import wizard and select Nebula. If Nebula is not in the list, add this setup file.

2. Import our PSF File

Copy and paste this file into a file.psf inside an eclipse project select it and use "Import Project Set..." from the context menu.


3. Clone the GIT Repo Manually
