CFEclipse: The REAL Nightly Build

posted under category: CFEclipse on October 13, 2005 by Nathan

Insane props to Rob Rohan, who worked out an ant script yesterday to export direct from the CFEclipse CVS repository, build the plugin, zip it and upload it onto his web site every night.

So for those of you complaining about not having err, wishing for a real nightly build, this is it.

Head over to Rob's Blog and find the CFE NIGHTLY section on the right side to download.

Installing is as simple as unzipping and matching folders with your eclipse folder, then restart Eclipse and you're in business. If it blows up or has unwanted features (very likely), close Eclipse, delete the folder and start it again.

If you wanted to be really bright, you could make an ant script to download the zip file nightly, unzip it and install it into your plugins folder for you. Then blog about it and share the code or send it to me because I'll be jealous. :)

Nathan is a software developer at The Boeing Company in Charleston, SC. He is essentially a big programming nerd. Really, you could say that makes him a nerd among nerds. Aside from making software for the web, he plays with tech toys and likes to think about programming's big picture while speaking at conferences and generally impressing people with massive nerdiness and straight-faced sarcastic humor. Nathan got his programming start writing batch files in DOS. It should go without saying, but these thought and opinions have nothing to do with Boeing in any way.
