What is LiClipseText?

LiClipseText is an editor which enables Eclipse to be used as a general-purpose text editor, providing support for multiple languages out of the box.

It's the Open Source (EPL-based) counterpart of LiClipse.

It comes with goodies such as:

  • Syntax Highlighting (LiClipse, TextMate or SublimeText based).
  • Code completion.
  • Outline view and Quick Outline.
  • Text-based mark occurrences.
  • LiClipse Languages view:
    • Enables exploring installed languages.
  • LiClipse Partitions view:
    • Enables inspecting the partitioning of the editor.
    • Useful to debug how LiClipseText is parsing a language.
  • Use LiClipseText as a base for other editors:
    • Languages may be created and experimented with on-the-fly, without restarting Eclipse.


The recommended way of using LiClipseText is bundled in LiClipse, which bundles LiClipseText in an easy to use package with extended features (also, by licensing LiClipse you directly support the development of LiClipseText).
