For what it's worth, it looks like goClipse has been abandoned since 2017 and it even appears like it is no longer supported. |
I tried installing goClipse with Eclipse version 2019-12 and it appeared like it was just a shell for the user interface. All the default "tools" under it's preferences were blank/empty when the documentation appears to suggest there should be something there as installed by default.
I also followed the provided link from above, and the developer states they are no longer supporting it.
I'm just curious, if a plugin has not been active since 2017, how are us end users supposed to know? I guess marketplace does not filter by compatibility? Or someone is just blindly marking goClipse as compatible? It looks like there were a large number of downloads through market place, but I'm having serious doubts that most of those downloads resulted in a functional product? It would be nice if market place also showed the number of uninstalls too, or perhaps a way to indicate that it does not work?
The bottom line here is that goClipse would not work for me with Eclipse version 2019-12, and with it being abandoned back in 2017, I don't think its worth trying to manually force it to work. Go is a life and thriving language, so there has to be something out there to better support the newer constructs and dynamics of the current golang releases.
