As Easy to Install as Code Recommenders Itself.
Code Recommenders offers a platform for community exploration of future Eclipse recommendation and crowdsourcing technologies. All current Incubator projects are available from the Eclipse Marketplace: Codesearch, Developer Statistics, Livedoc, and Snipmatch.
We encourage developers to share their ideas and make their tools available for the broader Eclipse community. Contact us on the mailing list if you'd like to start a new incubator.
Find Hidden Gems in Your Workspace.
Developers frequently have to solve the same problem over and over again. When a similar problem comes along, these existing solutions are often hard to find again. Codesearch helps you finds these hidden gems in your local workspace. Codesearch is fully integrated in the Eclipse Code Recommenders’ API Docs view.
The Developer Statistics project offers you information about the way you interact with your IDE.
If you want to know how often you use Content Assist and how many keystrokes this saves, have a look at Help > Developer Activity… You'll also find information on the various commands you use in your daily work.
Template Completion on Steroids
Often times, using an API correctly is more than selecting the right method; what is needed is an entire code snippet.
Snipmatch lets you search a growing repository for the snippets you need. Moreover, the Snipmatch project develops tools that make it easy to contribute back to the community, be it by writing new snippets or rating the snippets others contributed.
Not your father’s Javadoc anymore
Javadoc is a great way to read up on an API, but often it documents what you could do with the API rather than what you should do.
Livedoc changes this: With it, you can enrich your Javadoc with various source-code statistics (provided by Code Recommenders) that tell you exactly how other developers have used the API before. This gives you access to the Code Recommenders knowledge base from anywhere. All you need is a web browser.
