The only purpose of this tiny plugin (6K) is to open the folder in the native file manager containing the selected resource. It adds "Open in File System" to the context menu of package explorer, resource navigator and any other view showing files or Java classes. It also finds the containing Jar file for classes. Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux are supported.

Here are a few suggestions for improvements:
1) Make it possible for Users to assign a keybinding to this action. If the sole purpose of this plugin is to provide one action, at least make it as easy as possible to invoke.

btw, you can just declare one object contribution for IResource, and add the attribute:

how to install

Thanks for the plugin. It works for me. However, there is no p2 update site available from what I can tell. There is only an old-style update site. This made things difficult for me to install since I had to use the dropins folder to install.
