Feature request

Hi! I use Easy Shell a lot. Very good and useful tool. One improvemnet I would like is if I right-click a java klass, I would like to have an option to get the path like "com.mysite.subclass.MyClassName" in the clipboard..

Options don't show up in Java EE perspective

Options don't show up in Java EE perspective. Tested using Eclipse Luna 4.4.0

Pretty much part of my standard install.

Would love a ConEmu option as well, this is what I currently use for open:

ConEmu.exe /Title "Easy Shell" /Dir "{1}" /Single /cmd cmd

ConEmu support added with v1

ConEmu support added with v1.4.2

Very nice

A very nice and useful plugin. I have 2 suggestions though:
1. the ability to select which of the 4 options to be visible (for example, show only "Open" and "Explore", and hide the others, for people who use only some of these actions)
2. the ability to put the items in the main menu not in the "Easy Shell" sub-menu, for even quicker access.

Fix for spaces in folder and file names for Linux and Mac OS X

Please use v1.4.1

A great utility

One of my default tools. Thanks Andre.

Works with Eclipse 4.2 (Juno)

I've just installed EasyShell in Eclipse 4.2 (Juno) and it works well. The specifications say that this extension works with Eclipse versions 3.2-3.7, but it actually is compatible with later versions, too.

Keep in mind that when using with Mac OS X, some of the shell commands need to be changed from the defaults. For example:

  • Explore command: open {1}
  • Copy Path string: {2}

In most times, it works well

In most times, it works well in Juno, but sometimes, the sub menu of Easy Shell in the context menu is missing, while in Helios, it never happens. It seems to be a compatibility issue between current version of EasyShell and Juno.

error log

Thanks for reporting. Please provide Moore information. May be some error log. Try New Version 1.4.0

Linux - Wrong folder when opening a terminal

I've created a bug report:

If the project's root folder contains spaces EasyShell fail to open a shell in the right folder.
For instance, if the Project's root folder is, say, "My Project - Core" and I right click for instance "My Project - Core/java/net", select EasyShell->Open, in Linux opens a terminal in ~/Documents

Thanks for this usefull plugin.


Fix for spaces in folder and file names

Please use v1.4.1

spaces in names

Please answer about the proposed fix i you bug request, so i can release it with next version. Thanks!

Nice plugin but a boring point

Submitted by Cimballi on

The plugin is nice but the position of the menu item in the context menu could be better, mainly for the outline, I am used to have the "Run as" menu as the first item and now it's "Easy Shell".

Good, but Mac OS X defaults are wrong

I like this extension a lot, but the defaults for Mac OS X are wrong. I've not worked out the proper commands for the two shell commands, but the others should be:

  • Explore command: open {1}
  • Copy Path string: {2}

osx terminal command

I'm trying to find out the right command to open a terminal with osx.
The link for the bug request is not working. Sourceforge report an error trying to open the page.
The correct command to open a terminal form a terminal in Osx and make it change the directory is:
osascript -e 'tell application "Terminal" to do script with command "cd {path}"' where {path} should be substituted with the right path from one of those provided with EasyShell ({1}, {2},...).
At the moment this is not working. I hope someone else could give tips to make it working.


Thanks. Please use thi link.

So useful

Really wondering why this functionnality is not part of the official Eclipse platform!
