Eclipse IDE Install Wizard

Yatta Launcher for Eclipse helps users to install a fresh Eclipse IDE based on specific project requirements such as programming language, version control and build support

Have you ever installed the Eclipse IDE? Which one? Eclipse consists of dozens of development components, some of which you’ve probably never used — and never will. Yet the standard packages always bundle these together into one huge installer.

The new Install Wizard in Yatta Launcher lets you pick the IDE components you need, leaving a lightweight installation and pain-free setup. Select your required language, framework, version control and build support, then chill out or do something else while it takes care of the super-lean download and installation.

It gets better: after installation, your IDE will even run faster because all the fat has been trimmed off!

If you need to add more tools to your setup later on, of course that’s no problem. Just grab them from the Eclipse Marketplace Client[1], as and when you need them.

[1] Yatta is a major contributor to the open-source project of the Eclipse Marketplace Client, providing both the project lead and primary development resources.

The Install Wizard lets you choose from the following to build your dream Eclipse IDE — fast, flexible and fit, without all the bloat:

  • Languages
  • Frameworks
  • Version control
  • Build support

For this release, choices are limited. However, we will continuously improve the Install Wizard and add more components over time.
