If you have a standard set of projects that you import into every workspace, you can install the project importer workspace mechanic plugin and automate that process. Just drop config files with a .proj extension into your ~/.eclipse/mechanic folder.
The source is distributed as part of WOLips, though there aren't any dependencies on any other plugins in WOLips.https://github.com/wolips/wolips/tree/master/wolips/core/plugins/org.objectstyle.wolips.mechanic
# @title the title of your task # @description the description of your task # @reconcile true or false; reconcile true means that all of the discovered projects are checked every time, false means it does one initial installation and then never checks for changes /Path1 /Path2 /Path3
You can define one or more paths to your projects. This can either be a path that points to a single project, or a path that points to a folder containing projects. When you point to a folder containing projects, note that the importer will not scan below the direct children of the folder.
# @title A Bunch of Projects # @description Import a bunch of projects into this workspace # @reconcile true /Absolute/Path/To/Projects
If you use a relative path, it will be relative to your workspace folder.
# @title Relative Projects # @description Import a bunch of projects based on a relative path # @reconcile true ../RelativePathContainingProjects
You can define multiple entries, with a mix of absolute, relative, and container folder references.
# @title Individual Projects # @description Import Wonder 2.0/5.4 into this workspace # @reconcile true /Path/To/Project1 /Path/To/Project2 /Path/To/FolderContainingProjects
