The Ceylon IDE is a plugin for Eclipse. The IDE project was
initiated by David Festal from SERLI, a french
software company contributing to the Ceylon project.
Like everything we produce, Ceylon IDE is open source.
You can find out what Ceylon IDE has to offer, together with screenshots,
on the IDE features page. Of course, the best way to learn
what the IDE provides is to install it.
Running the IDE
You'll need a clean install of Eclipse 4.6 Neon,
Eclipse 4.5 Mars or of
Eclipse 4.4 Luna running on Java 7 or 8.
Install Ceylon IDE (which includes the Ceylon compiler) from our
Eclipse plugin update site.
After installing the plugin, go straight to
Help > Welcome to Ceylon.
