The other aspect of it is to offer the ability to create new projects for plug-ins you don’t have installed yet.
FYI, in JBoss Tools, we have projects "examples" to bootstrap new projects. And those example can be annotated with some metadata that will be used to automatically let user install necessary bundles (via the Discovery API) for it.
So for example, we could imagine a Cordova project example in an IDE that doesn't have Thym installled, and the IDE would automatically tell user to install Thym while trying to start the project.
Visual Studio calls these on-line templates. I imagine we’d incorporate something from the Eclipse Marketplace to populate the information in the wizard.
We also have something similar in JBoss Tools ;)
Forgot to mention that you can read the source from and give it a try by installing
