please make the Search Results sortableBy $something.
I wanted to search for Eclipse Plugins in the Category "Sourcecode Analyzer" and was greeted with "1738 Solutions and counting."
I looked around for some further option to filter/order/sort these 1738 and counting Solutions and did not find any.
I did find some cues in the Resultlist which may be used as properties the Resultlist could be sorted/filtered by:
- amount of Stars a plugin has might be used for orderBy
- amount of Comments a plugin has might be used for orderBy
- amount of plugin installations/pageviews
- time of last commit
- compatibility with Eclipse Version xy
P.S.: I did try the forum search scoped to this MPC-Section with search term "order" and "sort" and did not find any posts ... so i thought i write this posting, as noone wrote this before.
How do you guys look for new plugins ... and more importantly, how do you compare them against each other?
P.P.S.: I did some further searching for the git repo and when browsing the branches in https://github.com/eclipse/epp.mpc/branches i spotted "topic/mpc-2.0 Updated 15 days ago by creckord" ... yay \o/ And some futher digging led me to carstens own repos
which explained a bit better what is their goal.
Nice to see that development there. Would you maybe have a simple "recipe" i could execute to try out your implementation? I am not very versed in consuming these development-artifacts/branches ... i am thinking about smth. like
- "check out this repo xy"
- "call maven command z"
- copy following build result folder stuff to your eclipse-installations plugin-folder to make it available for trying
I would try it out :)
