Installing from Source

If you want to install from source for bleeding edge changes, first grab a copy of the source repository. In the Eclipse workspace, import the Eclipse project located in the source repository. Right click on the project and select Export. Select Plug-in Development > Deployable plug-ins and fragments. Select the Install into host. Repository: radio box and click Finish. Press OK for the notice about unsigned software. Once Eclipse restarts the plugin will be installed and it is advisable to close or remove the project from the workspace.
