A sample text widget

Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

How do you add a local Eclipse feature from a local build?

I’m trying to use a branch version of the m2e Android plugin to fix a problem with ADK r20 (see error-importing-maven-android-android-project-to-eclipse-with-adt-20 )

Turns out, Ricardo already merged the adt-20 branch to master.

$ git clone https://github.com/rgladwell/m2e-android.git
$ cd m2e-android
$ mvn install

So that builds the project. Takes a while too.

Now you uninstall the old plugin from Eclipse.

  1. Help -> Install Software… > What is already installed?
  2. Find “Android Configurator for m2e” with “me.gladwell.eclipse….”
  3. Click “Uninstall…”
  4. Restart Eclipse.

How do you create a local site to install from?

  1. Help > Install Software… > Add…
  2. Name = local m2e-android
  3. Location = /G:/projects/mobile/m2e-android/me.gladwell.eclipse.m2e.android.update/target/repository  (dont include the jar – the folder must be user – not the file: protocol either)
  4. Check “Android Connector for M2E” and Finish.

…and you are off!
