The Acceleo compiler as an Eclipse library
Following a request from Cédric, I tried to make the Acceleo compiler accessible as a library within Eclipse. In order to do that, I looked at the way JUnit does this to quickly have a small working prototype.
I think that showing the different versions of Acceleo is quite useless (you can see in the 2nd screenshot a combo with the different versions of Acceleo), I would rather show several libraries like the builder, the parser and the engine. That way it would be very easy for the user to add Acceleo as a stand alone library to its project.
In the end, Acceleo should also add the possibility to generate an “Acceleo Classpath” project just like our Acceleo UI project but this time the custom generator created by the user would be available as a library for Eclipse instead of a new action or both.
