Hi all. I just installed Eclipse with the Sloeber plugin to develop C++ code for processors in the Arduino ecosystem. Never used Eclipse before so the learning curve is a little steep, but I'm groping my way through. I'm also new to the workspace / project concept.

My question is about organization of the Workspace. When using the Arduino IDE, all project files are stored in a Windows folder known as the sketchbook. Within that folder I created a hierarchical tree of folds to organize my projects into logical groups. For example, to organize all my code for Halloween projects I'd have a subfolder called 'Halloween'. Underneath that I'd have subfolders called 'Light and Sound Effects' and 'Costumes' Underneath each of those I'd have subfolders with code for various projects. Hope you get the idea.

So, my question; is there a way to organize my Eclipse Workspace into a similar hierarchical structure? I think a flat Workspace containing dozens (or hundreds) of projects all at the same "level" would be ugly, unorganized, and difficult to work with. I'm obviously not an Eclipse 'power user', and never will be. I just want to bring a little organization to my setup.

Thanks in advance.

Update - Since that was my first post here, the system wouldn't let me include an external link. Now, here's the web site for Sloeber:
