jonocode – a developer's blog

I moved! –>

While using Eclipse PDT, every time I tried to open a YAML file, the software would try to open the file externally.  Since I had no YAML editor installed, this would generate an error.

Now I could right click and choose Open With –> Text Editor.  But I wanted something a little better than a simple text editor, and I didn’t want the extra clicks.

That’s where Yedit came in, another great plugin for Eclipse.  The plugin can be found here:

It installs easily in Eclipse:

Help –> Software Updates –> Add Site


Select the plugin from the list under this site, and click Install…

Remember to restart Eclipse after you install, in order to see the update.  You should now be able to open YAML files in your project easily.
