In one of my previous posts I talked about how to build Scala projects with PDE Build. However, PDE Build is rather old and has long been superseded by Buckminster. The great advantage of Buckminster is that it is actually a lightweight Eclipse SDK with all that you need to build an RCP application: a workspace of projects, a target platform, and so on. To build Scala projects in Eclipse you will most likely install the Scala IDE. Unfortunately, this plug-in cannot be installed in Buckminster right away. But there is a workaround…

I’m using Git as the version control system for my projects for some time now. Since the graphical user interfaces are not very mature yet and I like having full control over everything, I’m using Git on the command line (i.e. Bash). In order to avoid entering the same commands all over again, I wrote some Bash aliases and functions which ease the use of Git.
