SuperNova scripts for Eclipse
The attached zip file contains a SuperNova script and map file for the Eclipse IDE (Helios Service Release 2)
To install unzip the contents of the attached zip file into a temporary folder on your hard disk and then use the “File” ->”Import” menu option in SuperNova’s control panel in order to first import the map file (eclipse.dtl) and then import the script file (eclipse.lua). Once you have done this quit SuperNova from memory and restart it in order for the changes to fully take effect.
One of the things that the script does is to redefine the behavior of SuperNova’s “Where Am I?” hot key (NUM PAD 7) when used inside Eclipse’s main window. If you’re inside a region of Eclipse’s main window that has multiple property sheets (tabs) pressing SuperNova’s “Where Am I?” hot key will read out the name of the currently active property sheet (tab) that you are currently inside. However, if you’re not inside a property sheet then pressing the “Where Am I?” hot key will just read out the title bar of the current window that you’re inside (like SuperNova usually does).
In Eclipse’s main window the default hot key for cycling between the different property sheets is CONTROL+F7.
In addition, when pressing TAB inside Eclipse's code editing window (in order to indent the text in Eclipse), the script and map file makes SuperNova read out the new column position that you've just moved to.
Finally, inside Eclipse's code editing window if you press NUM PAD 3 (SuperNova's read headings hot key), the script and map file re-defines its behavior to read out your line and column position in the code.
Other useful SuperNova hot keys in Eclipse include NUM PAD 2 to read out the contents of Eclipse's status bar.
This is version 1.001 of the SuperNova script and map file for the Eclipse IDE and will give you basic access to most of the features of Eclipse.
