- Gradle (STS) Integration for Eclipse by Pivotal (feature name is Gradle IDE) @GitHub
- Gradle for Eclipse by Nodeclipse/Enide @GitHub
- EGradle Editor for .gradle files. @ https://github.com/de-jcup/egradle ADDED. Newly included since October 2017 as it is better than still included :
- Minimalist Gradle Editor plugin @GitHub
- Nodeclipse EditBox for code blocks highlight. @GitHub
- StartExplorer for quick switch to command line @GitHub
- ZipEditor with some additions v1.1.2 to quickly look inside Gradle output: aar, apk, jar, war ... etc files
With Enide Gradle for Eclipse
build.gradle file inside project would be enough. It can be created with Pivotal Gradle IDE; or by adding
build.gradle file to other project (e.g. Maven, Classic Java or C/C++). With Pivotal Gradle IDE .project file is to have
that you get with File -> New -> Project -> Gradle / Gradle Project or File -> Import -> Gradle / Gradle Project You can do without Gradle IDE with command line
$ gradle eclipse
then importing as existing project. Stone age of IDE: you would need to rerun `gradle eclipse` every time you update dependencies. But if you need just to take a look at a project, this way may suffice. (Some prefer the stability and predictability of generating Eclipse settings over having them managed inside eclipse with a plugin.)
Hints: When the same Gradle version is configured in Pivotal Gradle IDE, Enide Gradle and/or on system PATH, then daemon is reused. That will make build and task execution faster. Stackoverflow question -> Chapter 19.
