Install Nodeclipse quicker

If you are starting using Nodeclipse in a [big] team, you may have problem, that every developer needs to update Eclipse over [possibly] limited or unstable Internet connection. In this case you can:

  1. git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/Nodeclipse/www.nodeclipse.org to get all needed files on your device. You can copy www.nodeclipse.org folder on USB stick or other devices. You also have this article as _posts\2013-06-22-Nodeclipse-update-site-in-your-network.md file.
  2. npm install http-server -g to get simple HTTP file server, you may want to use Apache or any other
  3. http-server www.nodeclipse.org -p 8010
  4. Open http://localhost:8010/ to check if you see home page
  5. On every team device Start Eclipse, open Help -> Install New Software … Dialog, enter http://yourhostname:8010/updates/ where yourhostname is name of you device inside your local network.
  6. Uncheck “Contact all updates site during install to find required software” to make installation quicker.
  7. Follow standard Eclipse plugin installation instructions (that also can be seen on http://localhost:8010/updates/index.html#update-site)
