Resource Decorator Plug-in


This plug-in provides custom decorators for Resources. Decorations are based on filters that can be defined freely by the user. Thus resources can be decorated with background / foreground colors or with text prefixes / suffixes.


Decorations can be created from the context menu of any resource in your navigators.

To modify your filter settings use the preferences page at Preferences / General / Appearance / Resource Decorator.


While working with mylyn and working sets helps to organize the workspace, I was always missing some visual distinction between different project types. Like having different colors for plug-ins and features or highlight important files.
