Unconference Tracks

Eclipse IDE

  • Organizer: Mickael Istria,
  • Description: Come and share your thoughts about the Eclipse IDE. What can be improved in general, what are the user experience pattern that should guide its development, how do the

interested parties prioritize their work, how they should prioritize their work, define some rules for good integration in the IDE...

  • Prerequisite: Experience with the Eclipse IDE, actual user feedback (yours or "witnessed" usage) is helpful

Topics :

Generic Text edition and grammars

many plain editor tools simply rely on a textmate grammar to provide basic text edition features. It seems like Eclipse could take advantage of a similar approach. Status and possible ways forward.

Discovery and User Assistance

Eclipse IDE is very feature rich, but many very powerful features are difficult to even discover. How can the IDE allow more discovery for users?

Visual-only source code formatting.

Show editor's content using formatting rules that are different from the rules used on save.

Reduce usage of modal dialogs.

IDE-agnostic source code formatting rules.

Enrich UI/UX possibilities with renderers

Still using SWT ?

Improving lambda and streams in Java8

Streams debug + autocompletion This is a bug, not IDE related. We fill a bug for JDT.

Pinned/locked editor stack

Ability to reopen quickly. Keep frozen editor stack layouts.
