Install the WebDSL Eclipse Plugin

Perform a manual installation of the WebDSL plugin in Eclipse 3.5 or newer.

  1. In Eclipse, go to menu HelpInstall New Software.
  2. In the Work with: text area, type:

    https://webdsl.org/update
    
  3. Uncheck Group items by category to make the plugin visible.

  4. Check WebDSL Editor.
  5. Click Install and go through the remaining steps.
  6. Restart Eclipse.

It is recommended that the eclipse.ini of Eclipse is updated to give WebDSL enough stack space and memory to function correctly. Include the following options in eclipse.ini, below the line that starts with -vmargs.

-Xss8m -Xms256m -Xmx1024m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -server

On macOS this file can be found at Eclipse.app/Contents/MacOS/eclipse.ini.
