Getting Eclipse Ready
Developing layout algorithms requires you to have the Eclipse Layout Kernel SDK installed in your Eclipse installation. Follow these steps to install it:
- Start Eclipse and select Help - Install New Software… from the menu.
- In the Work with: field, enter the address of our release or nightly update site, which you can find in our Downloads section.
- From the Eclipse Layout Kernel category, check Eclipse Layout Kernel (Incubation) - SDK as well as Eclipse Layout Kernel (Incubation) - SDK (sources) and click Next.
- Follow the instructions of the installation wizard, accepting all of the license agreements.
- Restart Eclipse.
After the restart, there won’t seem to be much of a difference. Because there isn’t. But rest assured that your development environment is now perfectly prepared for what is about to come.
