Revision as of 01:33, 6 January 2017 by (Talk | contribs) (Update Sites)

The Eclipse Installer, powered by Oomph, automates the installation and update of Eclipse development environments:

To download the latest nightly build of the installer, pick one of Windows 64 Bit, Windows 32 Bit, Mac OS 64 Bit, Linux 64 Bit, or Linux 32 Bit.

You can also install the Oomph runtime into an existing IDE from the latest update site or site archive. See update sites for more...

Our help center is still work in progress but you may already find answers to your questions there.

The installer is provided by the Oomph project. If you are in doubt about the project's name see what The Free Dictionary says.



Non-exhaustive list of features:

  • Provisioning correct set of plugins in the Eclipse IDE.
  • Binding Git repos (incl. personal Gerrit push URL).
  • Checking out projects.
  • Setting workspace preferences.
  • Configuring Dynamic Working Sets.
  • Keeping project preferences files in sync.

The configuration is model driven, with the possibility to customize a lot for each project, each branch, each user…

Update Sites

We offer three types of drops: release, milestone, and nightly. They can be found in these composite repos:

The following is an uber composite of the three above composites:

For each of the four composite repos we offer a smaller variant that contains only the latest drop:

The single drops are individually available under as follows:

Note that at most five nightly drops are kept and that milestone drops are only kept until shortly after the next release.
