Solution Description

MouseFeed helps to form a habit of using keyboard shortcuts. When the user clicks on a button or on a menu item, the plugin shows a popup reminding about the key shortcut. After a few times, you remember the keyboard shortcut and you will start using it, rather than clicking through menus. This will save you a lot of time at the end of the day. MouseFeed was originally hosted at SourceForge. We have tried to contact the original developer, but we failed. For a lack of maintainer, Sigasi has adopted this project. We have fixed a few bugs, and we are now publishing it on the Eclipse Marketplace. Robert Wloch ported Mousefeed to Eclipse 4.x. We want to acknowledge and thank Andriy Palamarchuk and Heavy Lifting Software for starting the MouseFeed project back in 2007. Source Code

Nice plugin to keep learning Eclipse shortcuts. After installing it in Eclipse 4.7.2, though, doing any action (like moving the cursor around or trying to type) was retarded by 2-5 seconds so it became very difficult to do any work. Uninstalling it solved the slowness problem so I guess plugin was the cause of it.

as the MouseFeed Plugin 1.0.0 had some serious bugs and the original author did not respond to my mails I forked the Plug-in.
There are two versions available now: 1.1.1 works with Eclipse up to 3.7 and version 2.0.0 which was adoped to e4 workbench model and is running with Eclipse 4.2 M6 and future versions.

If anyone can help me replace the updatesite here in the Marketplace, your welcome to do so! The original MouseFeed Plug-in has not been further developed since 2008 and with the author not responding I consider it dead. Hence my fork to keep this cool Plug-in alive.


Since this plugin became very popular recently, it would be great if you guys could share the fixes you did or create another public repository for it (github, google code, sourceforge, ...).

There is one annoying bug that made me stop using this plugin (an exception for actions that have no label):
(there is already a patch for it on the source forge bug tracker)

Well, as I wasn't aware that the marketplace's Mousefeed Plug-in was different from the original one so I forked it in February 2012 and fixed the action-without-label bug and added new features.

Just last week I released 2.0.0 which will work with Eclipse 4.2 M6 and future releases.
