Eclipse N4JS Language and IDE


Downloads are soon to be made available through this page. For the moment, please see the Eclipse Installer below which will set up an installation ideal for committers.

Eclipse Installer (Oomph)

The recommended way to install the Eclipse IDE and set up the workspace is to use the Eclipse Installer. This installer is available from Run the installer and follow these steps:

  1. Switch to Advanced Mode via the menu located in the upper-right corner
  2. Select a product, e.g. "Eclipse IDE for Eclipse Committers" with a product version (Neon is recommended)
  3. Double-click the entry Eclipse Projects/N4JS so that it is shown in the catalog view
  4. On the next page, configure your desired paths for the installation and workspace directories
  5. Begin installation
The installer will guide you through the rest of the installation process. The workspace and all plug-ins are downloaded and configured automatically. The necessary git repository is also fetched and configured in the workspace.

System Requirements: In all cases, Java 8 is required to be installed on your system. Node.js version 8+ is also required. The N4JS plugins require the Eclipse Oxygen release (4.7).
