Eclipse Command Line Plugin

I need an Eclipse Plugin run shell scripts under Linux. I have a beautiful Rsync script and I want a button in Eclipse to activate it.

The best Solution would be if the Rsync shell script was also activated when I was saving Stuff, so maybe I can add a script builder or something like that.

Anyone has a clue for both of the solutions?


You could use the eclipse external tools feature. For running shell scripts put in the location field /bin/sh and the argument should be the shell script itself.

If you want to run a script when saving you can use the internal builders of Eclipse.

Project -> Properties -> Builders -> New... -> Program

Be sure you check the "After a Clean", "During auto build" options on the "Build Options" tab.
