Solution Description

Grep Console allows you to define a series of regular expressions which will be tested against the console output. Each expression matching a line will affect the style of either the entire line or parts of it. For example, error messages could be set to show up with a red background, or integer values showing the state of a certain variable could be rendered in bold font.

My team absolutely loves this plugin, but it stopped functioning with the latest version of Eclipse (2020-06) - is there any chance there will be an update allowing us to install and use this beauty again? Thanks a million!

Can you update to support the next version of Eclipse?  I just switched to STS 4.1 which is based on Eclipse 4.10.    Grep Console will no longer install since it looks like it is limited to Eclipse 4.9

Love the plugin!  looking forward to using it once again

This is a great plugin which makes it a lot easier when you have to keep an eye on your log messages.

I have a really hard time reading logs. This is a life saver - thanks!

Very nice plugin. Only thing I am missing is the possibility to grep less than a whole line. How about adding this feature?

Thanks a lot,
