Re: [ide-dev] Inconsistent Eclipse user experience


It is not clear to me from the proposal if this service is something that would be hosted and offered by Code Recommenders or the Eclipse Foundation. ‎Thoughts?

FWIW, I’m currently thinking about a service that allows users to share/export Eclipse preferences in a global repository - and allows them to reimport those, for instance, into new workspaces etc.

Based on that data, I’d like to create some stats and a tiny recommender that tells users which preference others used frequently (e.g. enabling auto-refresh and the like) and seamlessly integrate these recommendations into the UI (somehow). I'm also thinking about sharing common „preference profiles“ developers may use in their IDE and a couple things more.

Please find a *very drafty* draft of the idea here [1]. I’m aware of a couple of approaches to sharing preferences (see „Related approaches“ section in that document) but feel free to add more if you know some.
