This looks interesting. I can see how it could be very useful for modding. But... 233 Megabytes
Wow, that's huge! That dwarfs even the beefy Soundpack for SoundSense
. And that's inside the .ZIP still! I can only imagine how big it is after installation.
Is there any way to cut down the size a bit?
Anyway, does this eclipse + DF plugin provide a lot of extra features over Notepad++ syntax highlighting for DF raws
? If not, I'll probably stick with the latter until I upgrade. (Currently stuck with a 60 GB hard drive on laptop, which is mostly full.)Edit: Nevermind...
It seems those huge downloads were for SDK and subversions. It looks like there are much smaller Eclipse builds here: http://www.eclipse.org/modeling/tmf/downloads/?project=xtext
I was confused at first about mentions of "Build Dependencies" and such. I just wanted to find out how to install it. But I eventually found the Eclipse.org Wiki
. And these links seem to be what I was looking for:
* Install Guide
* Known Issues
* Updating and installing software
It looks like the only real dependency is having either Java 1.5 or 1.6 installed.Edit:
I was surprised when I could not find any downloads in the Downloads
tab of the dwarffotressraweditor
project. But then I looked at the Source
tab and found:
Non-members may check out a read-only working copy anonymously over HTTP.
It mentions "svn checkout" and an address. From this I assumed it could be downloaded via an SVN checkout tool. I tried doing a checkout using TortoiseSVN
, but all I got were these error messages:
Error: doesn't exist
I got it to work by using this address: http://dwarffotressraweditor.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/
But... I now see those "much smaller Eclipse builds" I mentioned was only the Xtext portion. So it really does look like a monster download and install, all told.
