About e4e4 is an incubator project for community exploration of future technologies for the Eclipse Platform.
Originally this project was used for the development of the underlying engine of the Eclipse 4 platform which concluded with the release of Eclipse 4.
After this the project incubated the new E4 Rich Client Tooling used to visually create the Application Model. This project also graduated and is now part of Eclipse Platform.
You can find the E4 tooling in the Release Train repository. The projects that are currently cooking here are:
Eclipse SpiesE4 spies is a set of tools to help in developing application using Eclipse 4. These tools are very helpful when creating a "pure E4" project the spies makes the development of "pure e4" applications easier and helps to understand the underlying E4 concepts like "Application Model", "Events", "Contexts", "Preferences" and "CSS Styling".
Smart Project Importer FrameworkCurrently, when importing a project, users are facing the difficult choices of what project they are importing and how to import it. The various technologies involved in a project can easily be detected by some automated check, such as presence of specific files, some content in a file or files with a specific extension. The purpose of the framework is to use such interesting data to automatically detect the nature of the project and automatically configure it at best, with very minimal effort from the user.
