There are two versions of EclipseFP. Version 1 is fairly old and no longer actively developed. Version 2 is still under heavy development, but is the version recommended for end use.
Development of EclipseFP 2 had been picked up by Thomas ten Cate in the context of a Google Summer of Code project. See also his project blog.
The project is now actively maintained and developed by JP Moresmau. Version 1.108.0 is the first formal release of that code. Current version is 2.2.3.
You need a Java 5.0 compliant virtual machine (JDK or JRE) installed on your system. (For Linux, Solaris and Windows systems you can find one at http://java.sun.com/).
You need Eclipse 3.5.x (Galileo) or above (Helios). If you don't have Eclipse, download it from http://eclipse.org/downloads/. The Eclipse "IDE for Java Developers" package is sufficient.
EclipseFP uses Scion, the Haskell IDE library. See
for more information. However, some changes have been made especially for EclipseFP and from version 1.111, EclipseFP includes a modified source distribution of scion,
that is built and used by eclipsefp if the use built-in server preferences option is checked. This is of course the recommended option.
If you wish to hack around the version of Scion used by EclipseGP, you'll need to build Scion from source (
git clone git://github.com/JPMoresmau/scion.git,
runhaskell Setup.hs configure/build/install)
Download and installation of the plugins themselves is done via the built-in Update Manager in Eclipse. You can find installation instructions here.
Complete instructions to download and build Eclipse FP2 from source (if you want to contribute to the EclipseFP code base) can be found here.
