eXLEpse – XLE Plugin for Eclipse Platform

The eXLEpse plugin for the Eclipse platform was presented officially on July 16th – 19th, 2011 at the 16th International Lexical Functional Grammar Conference (LFG2011) at the University of Hong Kong. The eXLEpse plugin is developed cooperatively by the Human-Computer Interaction Group (Roman Rädle and Michael Zöllner) and the Department of Linguistics (Sebastian Sulger), both located at the University of Konstanz. Since the eXLEpse plugin is open-source, you can try it out, give feedback or contribute to the project in various ways such as code contribution, sponsoring, or donation.

You can download a bundled package using direct download links below (Download eXLEpse files). Each bundle consists of a ready to go Eclipse Platform and starts with the eXLEpse perspective as the default perspective.
