To use SConsolidator, you first have to install SCons (version 2.0 is the minimum requirement). SConsolidator requires at least a Eclipse Indigo release of the CDT, otherwise you won't be able to install SConsolidator. Execute the following steps to install it in Eclipse:
- Choose the menu Help, Install New Software...
- Type the URL of the SConsolidator update site into the site field:
- Then, you can either only install SConsolidator's base functionality by choosing the feature
SConsolidator - Base
SConsolidator - Dependency Visualization
for visualizing build target dependencies (the latter needs GEF and Zest to be installed).
- After the installation, Eclipse will ask to restart itself. Please do this.
