Not bad, but I prefer the EGradle editor. 

Exactly.

This plugin has been minimalist. Created in 2014, about 30KB, no dependencies. Should work forever. Basically highlight is the only feature.

Where as EGradle Editor was decoupled from EGradle in 2017, has integrated docs, completions etc, and in development, together with EGradle. See https://github.com/de-jcup/egradle

 

Hi,
Could somebody please explain to me, in baby steps, what I have to do to get this to work: at the moment I have various Gradle plugins/add-ons installed in Eclipse (Mars), including this "Minimalist" thing, but I've yet to see any formatting or syntax colouring for my .gradle files... although in project explorer any file with this extension now has a green "G" icon. Which is nice.

Please bear with me: when people say install "X" I never know whether they mean goto Help --> Install new software or Help --> Eclipse Marketplace. Maybe it's the same?

And, is there anything I have to do once I have installed this plugin/add-on to make it want to work nicely with .gradle files? ... thanks.

left click gradle file and open with...

Just installed, it looks great, I just would like to suggest supporting bookmarking in a future version, IMO that's very useful.
Currently to create a bookmark I need to reopen the file using Open With / Text Editor, create the bookmark and open the file using Open With / Minimalist Gradle Editor again; then the bookmark is visible in the editor and in the Bookmarks views (although when I hover with the mouse on the bookmark in the editor there is no tooltip).
