CodeTogether for Eclipse Installation Guide

Installing the CodeTogether Plugin

CodeTogether requires Eclipse Neon (4.6) or higher. If you have the Marketplace Client installed, it’s simple to add CodeTogether to Eclipse. With Eclipse running, drag the Install button from our Eclipse Marketplace listing onto the workbench to initiate the installation. Alternatively, you can also install it using the button on the CodeTogether download page.

If you prefer using an Eclipse update site directly, use this URL: https://www.codetogether.com/updates/ci/

Getting Started

After adding the CodeTogether plugin to your Eclipse IDE, it’s simple to pair program with others. Simply start a session and then share the URL for that session with others.

Use one of the following options to start collaborating with others:

  • Click Start Sharing from the CodeTogether view (Window > Show View > Others > CodeTogether > CodeTogether); or, select Help > CodeTogether > Start Sharing.

    Then, click Copy Invite URL to copy the session URL to the clipboard to send to others.
  • Select text in the editor, and then click the Start link that appears below the selection. When ready, click the Invite URL link to copy the session URL to the clipboard to send to others.
