2018-02-28Bug 307889 - [Intro] having "tip of the day" functionalityI20180228-2000Wim Jongman1-0/+7
This is the initial contribution of a Tip of the Day framework to Eclipse. It provides a dialog with tips that can be started from the Help menu. Optionally is is show at IDE or RCP application starts. Extenders can provide their own tips by implementing a TipProvider. TipProviders can be added to the tips extension point and/or can be initialized from a JSon file. TipProviders can get priority based on an enabled when expression similar to commands and handlers. For example, EMF tips may be shown when the modeling perspective is open. Tips can be created from straight up HTML, hosted on a separate web page (e.g. Eclipse wiki), created from a Json file or be a full blown SWT implementation. Tips can provide actions to enable the user to open a view, set some preferences or whatever. The framework is UI agnostic but comes with a separate SWT implementation. Examples on how to create a Tips and TipProviders are available. Documentation is on the wiki: The Tips framework uses null annotations, by default all methods cannot return null, except if they annotated with @Nullable. Changes done by Lars in cooperation with Wim ==Wim 16/feb== * removed annotations in core for now * Fixed some javadoc == Lars 16/feb== Removed the TipThemeManager Remove TipProvider from the Tip API, the Tip does not need to know its provider Tip now require the TipID Tips hashcode and equals methods are based on summary, providerID and creation date Removed the special getImage64 methods and refactored getImage48 to getImage == Wim 27 feb == Removed json plugin Change-Id: Ib65e150bdeb5f3f38075d8c6432e5b476bfa064d Signed-off-by: Wim Jongman <>
