Generates an Eclipse Pydev configuration file with path dependencies for an egg

Project Description

A recipe that writes a .pydevproject file in a specified location. This file will contain paths of all the eggs of the current zope instance + any other paths specified in the buildout.cfg file. After running the buildout you’ll have to close and reopen the Eclipse project, to regenerate the project’s module indexes.

Almost all options of this recipe for the buildout.cfg are optional. The only one required is the eggs option. A sample zope3 instance buildout, with the pydev recipe could be something like this:

develop = .
parts = instance pydev

recipe = zc.zope3recipes:app
eggs = something [app, third_party]

recipe =
eggs = ${sample-app:eggs}

For Plone integration and further configuration options, read the README.txt doctest inside the source code.
