Angularjs Plugin For Eclipse Mars

This video tutorial gives you the basics of Eclipse, demonstrates how to provide the necessary information to create an IoT project and covers the specific steps to follow to implement an Angularjs-based plugin on a project.

Over a month ago we started a new project at work. It’s a big, big project that will be completed in 2 years. I’m working with Angularjs again, and I really like it. When I joined the team they were using Eclipse Mars. We’ve been testing some plugins for Eclipse online, but they all didn’t fully support this version of Eclipse. That was the reason to build our own plugin for Angularjs with debugging and code completion. While building it I’ve discovered a lot of useful information about Angularjs, its API and how can we integrate new frameworks into the Eclipse IDE.

You’d first wanna make sure you have the JSDT installed.

Next thing is to install some dedicated tools for the job, so check out AngularJS Eclipse Tools. The AngularJS Eclipse Templates might be of help, too, and here’s a visual guide written for it to get you started.

Also see the AngularJS Eclipse getting started page.

Since this answer had been posted, the AngularJS Eclipse plugin was released, as other answers stated. You might wanna check it out first.

  • Thanks a lot..I’ll surely check as it looks promising. – Vikash Aug 24, 2013 at 18:17
  • “which is not optimal IMO for JavaScript developers”, so can you suggest a more appropriate tool ? (preferably free ;)) – c4k Feb 21, 2014 at 18:46
  • 2@Chafik, i use intellij’s idea, but only because i also develop in java – webstorm is practically the same, but web oriented (webstorm has a subset of idea’s capabilities). idea has a community edition, but it lacks the web features, and both can be obtained for free for one month evaluation period. anyhow i think they worth the money if you decide to get the commercial version. – Eliran Malka Feb 21, 2014 at 20:52

    Install AngularJS Eclipse
  • Right Click on your project --> Configure --> Convert to Angularjs Project (as shown below)

  1. Make sure the project is extracted on your hard disk.
  2. In Eclipse go to the menu: File->New->Project.
  3. Select “General->Project” and click on the next button.
  4. Enter the project name in the “Project name:” field
  5. Disable “Use default location” Click on the “Browse …” button and select the folder that contains the project (the one from step 1)
  6. Click on the “Finish” button
  7. Right-click with the mouse on you’re new project and click “Configure->Convert to AngularJS Project..”
  8. Enable you’re project goodies and click on the “OK” button.

Since these previous answers above, there is now a release of an Eclipse Plugin to assist with development using AngularJS:—Update-Site (take a look around the other Wiki pages for information on features)

The release at the time of the answer is 0.1.0.

Please also checkout JSDT ( and also Eclipse VJET ( The VJET project appears to be an attempt to provide better feature sets to the editor without being encumbered by the JSDT project (open source politics at play I guess).

Configuration worked with Eclipse Mars 4.5 version.

1) Install Eclipse Mars 4.5 from This comes with Tern and embedded Node.js server

2) Install AngularJS Eclipse plugin from Eclipse Marketplace

3) Configure node.js server to the embedded nodejs server within Eclipse (found in the eclipse plugins folder) at Windows-> Preferences -> JavaScript -> Tern -> Server -> node.js. No extra configurations are required.

4) Test configuration in a html or javascript file.

With current Angular 4 and 5 versions, there is an IDE for that.

Go to eclipse market place any search for ‘Angular’. You will see the IDE and install it.

enter image description here

After that restart eclipse and follow the welcome messages to choose preferences.

How to start using eclipse with angular projects?

Considering you already have angular project and you want to import it into eclipse.

go to file > import > choose Angular Project

enter image description here

and It would be better to have your projects in a separate working set so that you will not confuse it with other kind of (like java)projects.

With Angular IDE You will have a terminal window too.

To open this type terminal in eclipse search box(quick access) on the top right corner.

enter image description here
