Customizing Eclipse Project Files

I’m able to add an entry to .classpath using just the eclipse plugin, but this doesn’t seem to work when the project is imported with Buildship 1.0.12. I stumbled across the linked topic from about a year ago and was wondering if there had been any progress made towards allowing customization of the .classpath/.project files?


What kind of entries are you referring to? Buildship already handles project and external dependencies as well as source folders.

To make Buildship aware of other adjustments, we first need to replace the XML-manipulation-based approach in Gradle Core with a model-based approach. This is something we want to do, but there is no concrete plan as to when.

You can already declare additional natures in your Gradle project and Buildship will include them in the created .project file.
