Hi,

I'm newbie and this is a stupid question.

Now that that is sorted out:
How do I export my xtext-based editor plugin from eclipse so that I can install it to a normal eclipse (without xtext).

Seems like my editor plugin is only available if xtext is installed.

Kind Regards,
Mikko Korpela

Hi Mikko,

the Right Way (TM) is to create a Eclipse P2 Repository (AKA update site) which hosts your plugins and install them from there. Of course you need Xtext in order to install these plugins. Therefore the Xtext update site must be configured as available update site when you try to install from there.

The easiest way to create such a repository is
- create a feature project for your DSL plugins and add them to the feature.xml
- create an update site project which contains this feature (you may even add the Xtext SDK and all other required features)
- use the Export Wizard to create the repository for the update site

HTH,
~Karsten
