Currently, there are two ways to install the Frills plug-ins, you can use the Eclipse update system to install the latest version of the Frills Feature, or you can download and install select plug-ins individually.


The Eclipse Frills plug-ins are developed and tested on:

I tend to develop these for the version of Java and Eclipse that I am currently working on. Should you find any issues with the version you are running, please file a bug report and I will make sure that everything works for you.
Download and install them individually

In order to pick and choose which plug-ins you get, you must download them individually.

  1. Go to the project download site and download the desired plug-in.
  2. You will need the "net.sourceforge.eclipsefrills.core" plug-in if you do not already have it installed.
  3. Move the jar files into the plug-ins directory of your Eclipse installation.
  4. Start Eclipse (or restart if you already have it running).
Install them all at once using the update site

If you want to install all of the plug-ins in one shot, this is the way to go.

  1. From the Eclipse menu select: Help > Software Updates > Find and Install
  2. Select "Search for new features to install" and click the Next button.
  3. Click the "New Remote Site..." button.
  4. Enter "Eclipse Frills" for the site name, and "" for the URL, then click the OK button.
  5. Click the Finish button to start the update.
  6. Select your features and proceed through the installation.
  7. Once the download and installation have finished you will need to restart Eclipse.
