We recommend to use Eclipse to develop with tapir. By using the Eclipse Installer you get a running preconfigured Eclipse IDE in no time at all.
Alternative 1: Eclipse Installer (recommended)
The Eclipse Installer is the easiest way to install and update your Eclipse Development Environment. You can download the Eclipse Installer .
- Download the Eclipse Installer for your platform:
- Run the Eclipse Installer
- Drag and drop this button into the Eclipse Installer header: Install
- Confirm via Install and Start
Alternative 2: Manual installation
In case you don’t want to use the Eclipse Installer you can install the plugins in your eclipse manually via the corresponding update-site. Beside JDT tapir needs Maven (M2Eclipse) and Xtend (at least 2.13) to work.
If you just would like to get a first impression of tapir we highly recommend our show case which it hosted at GitHub.
