I was able to get this working in 2 seconds, it works great. My issue is that as my program is running and generating logs, the original console pops to the foreground every time a new log is created, and I have to click the "Switch consoles" button to go back to my filtered view. Is there a way around this?

Additionally, instead of highlighting things that match, is there a way to simply omit things that don't?

You can try deactivating "Show when program writes to standard out/error" on your original console.

You can omit lines that not matches, by clicking "Not matching" in the Easy Console Grepper dialog.

Thanks a lot!

Possible improvement (for me anyway) would be a small textfield to quickly type a filter and having the console clear&refresh as I type (I think the Android Logcat behaved like that, but not sure).

Thanks for your proposal.
I'll think about that. But presumably this is not possible caused by the used RCP framework, where ECG is integrated in.
It is not possible to integrate textfields into a ToolBar :-(
But I could integrate a new "Clear&Refresh" button into the Grep Settings dialog.

I spent hours trying to get Grep Console to work for me, but this plugin worked out of the box. Recommended.
