Overview

The GNU ARM Eclipse project includes a set of open source Eclipse plug-ins and tools to create/build/debug/manage ARM (32-bits) and AArch64 (64-bits) applications and static/shared libraries, using the latest GNU ARM GCC toolchains. 

Eclipse Marketplace

Aiming to further improve the user experience while installing/updating the plug-ins, the GNU ARM Eclipse project was registered to Eclipse Marketplace:

Benefits

The main advantage of using the Eclipse Marketplace is a simplified install procedure, no longer requiring to manually enter the update site address.

The Install button

The Eclipse Marketplace not only provides a centralised index to locate projects, it goes one step further and provides a drag-and-drop browser button.

Install button

As seen above, the button can be included in any web page.

To use it, drag-and-drop the button to a running Eclipse, and the plug-ins to install/update will be automatically identified:

Eclipse Marketplace Features

If, for any reason, this does not work, it is always possible to search the Eclipse Marketplace manually from within Eclipse menus:
