a) Marketplace (Recommended way: a bit quicker)

    See tip how

4.  You will then be asked if you would like to restart Eclipse. Click Restart Now.
5.  Switch to Node perspective (e.g. Window -> Open Perspective -> Other ... -> Node).
6.  Now you are ready to develop Node.js applications with Nodeclipse!

b) update site (bigger choice)

1.  Start Eclipse, then select Help > Install New Software...
2.  Enter the update site URL into the Work with text box:
    http://www.nodeclipse.org/updates/
    or the one that is quicker but changes every release
    http://dl.bintray.com/nodeclipse/nodeclipse/0.17/
    Select with checkbox what you want to install.
    ("The more, the better" does not apply here.
    Take note of what features names you are installing.)
    Below is Enide-Recommended-Set-for-Nodejs for example.
3.  Uncheck "Contact all updates site during install to find required software"
    to make installation quicker.
    Note that different Eclipse version have different behaviour for that checkbox.
    Press the Enter key or Next button.
4.  After a while depending of what you had and what you selected,
    you should see the center box filled with Eclipse plugins to install.
    Click Next.
5.  Review the features that you are about to install. Click Next.
6.  Read the license agreements,
    and then select I accept the terms of the license agreements. Click Finish.

8.  Switch to Node perspective (e.g. Window -> Open Perspective -> Other ... -> Node).
9.  Now you are ready to develop Node.js applications with Nodeclipse and great tools!

c) Archive (when Internet is slow, not stable or installing many times)

zip archive has content identical to update p2 site

0.  Download zip from SourceForge.
1.  Start Eclipse.
2.  Help -> Install New Software -> Add -> Archive.

Hint for b) & c): keep the file name the same when updating, or remove old path and URLs as Eclipse keeps checking them.

d) Enide p2f file

0.  Read more at Marketplace page.

e) Nodeclipse CLI Installer

0.  Read more at GitHup page.
1.  cd path/to/eclipse
2.  nodeclipse install nodejs markdown gfm startexplorer
3.  Start Eclipse.

Updating

If you used http://dl.bintray.com/nodeclipse/nodeclipse/0.17/ like URL or update site zip archive, you will just need to install with any above option. (Also you will need to clean up old update sites in Preferences -> Update/Install -> Available Software Sites.)
Otherwise Eclipse "Help -> Check for updates" should work. You will be notified about updates if you have "Automatic Updates" enabled in Preferences. Check home page for announces and news about new plugins and workflow.

Reset perspective after an update for new UI elements to appear: ResetPerspective

If you have run into the problem while updating, e.g. "#72", 1) let us know by raising new issue (tell exactly what OS, Java version, Eclipse version and Nodeclipse version is used.) 2) Update to latest JDK. 3) Uninstall then install: 3.1) Uninstall Nodeclipse Core (only 1 feature entry) via Help -> About Eclipse -> Installation details, select Nodeclipse, then Uninstall.. button 3.2) install again.

Troubleshooting

If you can't install, try different way to get Nodeclipse, e.g. other update site, Enide or Enide Studio.
Check home page for announcements.
