Is anyone within the sound of my voice using the Wuff plugin for building Eclipse plugins? I’m attempting to use it, but I’m also pretty new to Eclipse plugin development, and the docs on the Wuff github site are somewhat presumptuous.
I inherited a large Eclipse plugin codebase, and I’m attempting to convert the existing build, which uses Maven Tycho, as I discovered that Maven Tycho isn’t able to package Maven dependencies as an OSGi plugin (the original authors apparently ran into this, and they just dumped the required jars into a “lib” folder, which I’m not going to allow to carry forward).
The Wuff doc page that talks about converting an existing app (https://github.com/akhikhl/wuff/wiki/Convert-existing-Eclipse-plugins-and-apps-to-Gradle) seems to assume that the plugin is also inside an Eclipse RCP application, which is not the case here. After following the instructions on the page, the resulting build actually doesn’t do anything. It doesn’t fail, it just doesn’t build anything.
