LiClipseText LiClipse

LiClipseText development

LiClipseText is open source and depends on your contributions! This may be in the form of bug fixes, answers on stackoverflow, new features... Another option is financially supporting it:


Favorite at Eclipse Marketplace

Standalone install

LiClipseText is available in LiClipse, which provides a hassle free (and OS-native) experience to install it.

Note that by supporting LiClipse you also directly support the development LiClipseText itself.

See the About for the differences from LiClipse to LiClipseText.

See the LiClipse homepage for details on getting it.


Note if using Eclipse standalone, LiClipseText requires only the Platform Runtime Binary (download around 67 MB).

LiClipseText does not appear after install!

Well, the main issue at this time is that LiClipseText requires Java 11 in order to run. So, if you don't want to support LiClipseText by going the LiClipse route (which has LiClipseText plus other goodies), you may have to go through some loops to make sure that you're actually using Java 11 to run Eclipse/LiClipseText (as explained below).

All OSes

Make sure you download/install the latest Java 11 JRE or JDK, try restarting to see if it got it automatically.

I.e.: in help > about > installation details > configuration check if it's actually using the java 11 version you pointed at.

If it didn't get it automatically, follow the instructions from: to add the -vm argument to eclipse.ini on "Specifying the JVM" to specify the java 11 vm (this should also be used in case you just extracted java and didn't override the default system installation).

Note on Mac OS: You can use the command "/usr/libexec/java_home -v 11 to get the base path for the JVM (though you also need to append "/bin/java" to the output of said command to the -vm arg in eclipse.ini).
