Solution Description

The Workspace Mechanic automates maintenance of your Eclipse environment by tweaking preferences, adding extension locations, and so on. You can use it to:

  •  Create a consistent environment among groups as large as the entire company, your local team, or even among your own many workspaces
  • Save time setting up new workspaces
  • Create tasks that ensure your favorite new preferences are applied to all your current and future workspaces. (This is one of our favorite features!)
  • Continuously check your IDE Preferences against the checked in preferences (all workspace mechanic properties files can be checked in into teams favorite scm)
  • Ensure that whole team is using the same settings (save actions, file encoding (utf-8))

The description of the plugin and the announcement which I found googling around (https://opensource.googleblog.com/2010/05/introducing-workspace-mechani…) sound quite promising but how does one use it? I found no instructions, user manual nor description. Searching eclipse's help didn't reveal anything, either. So - how does one actually make use of this feature??? What do I need to do to make this copy my settings from an eclipse installation A to some (existing or new) installation B?

I have updated to use the links provided by Alfred Schmid, and also added Alfred as an editor of this Marketplace entry.

Note that I am not an author of this plugin. However it is a popular plugin that has not been submitted to the marketplace by the authors. I believe it benefits the marketplace and Eclipse ecosystem generally to have this entry, even though submitted by a third party.
