About a year ago, I created a template to use the Cinder framework within Eclipse. I still use it all the time, as I still find Eclipse a better C++ editor (although xcode is slowly catching up if you use the compile and use the latest LLVM). I recently decided to revisit it and update it to better fit the workflow I prefer, and fix issues I’ve over time found work arounds for.

- enter: “Open .”
This is actually the most important step:
