I have a plug-in for a custom language that extends the Eclipse IDE to allow programming in that language, let's call it xyz.|
So far, we have everything working with the base application as the Eclipse IDE (org.eclipse.ui.ide plugin is a dependency). Based on some recent requirements, we need to create a lighter version of the IDE that will basically remove the whole concept of Projects, Workspaces etc; just a simple editor with some basic launching facilities in the Console and some other specific things. So it will be a simple Matlab like concept for xyz language.
I first started with using activities to hide things like the Project menu and I would also want to hide File -> New... -> Project... and menu contributions like that. I tried using various expressions with the activity binding pattern to hide the Project menu for example, but it didn't work. I am getting the impression that there are some aspects of the Eclipse IDE that cannot be affected by activities. If this is true then I would need to create an RCP based IDE for xyz language. I would like to confirm this before I make such a major change to my current setup.
I had also posted on stackoverflow but I was directed to the Eclipse forums as a better place for such a question.
