Solution Description

Eclipse community awards 2009 finalist

AnyEdit plugin adds several new tools to the context menu of text- based Eclipse editors, to output consoles, to Eclipse main menu and editor toolbar. AnyEdit contributes also Import/Export working sets wizards.

What can AnyEdit do for you?

AnyEdit can perform tabs <-> spaces conversion on multiple files or entire directories.

AnyEdit has both workspace and project settings and allows also file exclusion filter for tabs <-> spaces action.

AnyEdit allows you automatically remove trailing whitespace, perform tabs<->spaces conversion and fix line delimiters (Windows: CRLF<->Linux: LF<->Mac: CR) on the "save" action in all text-based Eclipse editors. Also AnyEdit can automatically create a new line at the end of the file if the last line was not terminated by new line.

AnyEdit adds "Save All" and "Open File" buttons to the global Eclipse toolbar and can remove "Print" button from it on Eclipse 3.x (because it is completely useless on Linux).

AnyEdit adds "Open File", "Open Type" and "Save to file..." actions to supported output consoles and "Save to file..." toolbar button to the Console view.

AnyEdit adds four new context menu actions to "Compare With" and "Replace With" menus in both editors and files.

Overview about *visible* contributions provided by AnyEdit tools:

What? Where? Details Open File under Cursor Editors, Console views, Bytecode Outline View Useful by many include's in jsp's, C/C++ files, file names in the console output etc. Can jump to the right line!
Works with run/debug and Ant console too, support "jump to line"! Open Type under Cursor Editors, Console views, Bytecode Outline View Useful for all xml's, tld's, jsp's etc files with referenced Java types.
Works with run/debug and Ant console too! Save to file... Most of the Console views, Bytecode Outline View Allows to save the console/view content and quickly reopen it in an editor.
Works with most of the existing consoles! Format Stack Trace Java Stack Trace Console view Formats the ill-formated stack traces (like from some JUnit test reports).

I cannot install from Marketplace. Other plugins - no issues, so it means required certificates are installed.
When checking this page manually (from web browser), I got 404 error:

Hello,

I really love your plugin and i confirm the error when installing
from MarketPlace with 2020-09 version :

The error popup contains :

Unable to read repository at
https :// raw.githubusercontent.com/iloveeclipse/plugins/latest/content.xml.
Received fatal error : handshake_failure

Need to renew a cert, may be ? ;-)

Thk, see you later !
 

This feature is available in many Eclipse editors as an optional configuration - that is disabled by default as it is an action that is surprising and destructive (changes file content unexpectadly in regions that were not edited), and installing this plugin may look like there's a bug in eclipse where an undesired is not enabled by default - with no option to disable it.

Users should be aware that installing this plugin enables a destructive behavior by default without any warning to the user.

And to the author of the plugin: if you are concerned about trailing whitespace enough to warrant their removal, then please pay attention that there are other people that might be concerned about tailing whitespace enough to want them to stay, and making changes to user's files without the user requesting the change is never OK!

I've narrowed it down to this plugin (that I'm a big fan of!): with the plugin installed, cut+paste is sluggish, as is general editor utilization.  Once the plugin is uninstalled, everything works smoothly again.

This is verified on a fresh Eclipse JEE install, where this is the only additional plugin installed.

Cheers!

So why not open a bug at the famous STS bug tracker? This is obviuosly not a problem of a plugin if the STS runtime platform is not able to install it. As said, AnyEdit works on *all* supported Eclipse releases up to latest 4.8 nightly, and I guess that this STS thingy is simply broken: "requires 'osgi.ee; (&(osgi.ee=JavaSE)(version=1.7))' but it could not be found".

The ability to compare open files alone is the biggest timesaver. Lots of other cool utilities.
I'm glad this package is still supported for the archaic version of Eclipse that I'm still using :-)

This is a simple, reliable and handy plugin. It works like a charm on my Eclipse CDT with the Lua Development Tools plugin.

Great job!
