Some handy Eclipse plugins (2)

This is an updated version of http://blog.simpleigh.com/2013/06/some-handy-eclipse-plugins/ for Eclipse Mars.

One of the most exciting features of Eclipse is the plugin ecosystem. Eclipse has been around for ages, and there are plenty of fantastic plugins adding additional programming languages and features. Here’s a list of some I’ve found useful:

Geppetto

Puppet is a great way to automate the configuration of new servers. Geppetto (the puppet maker) is an IDE for this: providing syntax highlighting and integration with the Puppet forge.

Json Editor

Support for JSON.

Mars Updates

Eclipse provides much of its core functionality via plugins, and there’s plenty available to extend the default configuration.

As advertised last post, syntax highlighting makes editing ReStructured Text a lot easier…
