If you want to get the sources of EMF Parsley, for instance, to contribute new features and patches, you can get them via Git.
Note that you need two different workspaces (and two different target platforms) if you want to materialize also the workspace for developing the RAP version of Emf Parsley (see below).
We use Buckminster as the building and materialization infrastructure. We provide an ant script which installs and runs Buckminster. This will automatically materialize the sources in the workspace and setup the target platform, so that you will have everything that is necessary to have a working workspace with EMF Parsley sources.
What this ant script will do in detail:
Especially the first time (for cloning and materializing the target platform) the script might take several minutes. (Target platform materialization might also fail due to network problems; in that case, try and run the script again).
Run the ant script located here. In unix you can use following command:
wget -N http://git.eclipse.org/c/emf-parsley/org.eclipse.emf-parsley.git/plain/devtools/org.eclipse.emf.parsley.contributor/workspace.ant
and then run the script:
ant -f workspace.ant
If you want the workspace for RAP version of Emf Parsley, run the script as follows:
ant -f workspace.ant materialize.workspace.rap
You can pass custom path using the variables defined above; for instance
ant -Dgit.clone.dest=/myrepos/emf-parsley -DWORKSPACE=/myworkspaces/parsley -f workspace.ant
After the script terminates successfully, you can open the materialized workspace with Eclipse (an automatic build will also start for compiling Xtend files). The workspace is already setup with the correct target platform.
