Merge SnipMatch into Eclipse Code Recommenders

by Cheng Chen for The Eclipse Foundation

Eclipse Code Recommenders is a set of tools that make IDEs more intelligent, reducing development costs. Code Recommenders provides intelligent code completion, extended javadocs, smart bug detectors, stacktrace search engines and other similar features. I will add code snippet search, sharing, and autocompletion to the Code Recommenders project. SnipMatch is a code snippet search tool for Eclipse (designed and built by my mentor Doug Wightman and Zi Ye), you can view the video demo and other documentation at This GSoC project aims to improve and merge SnipMatch into Code Recommenders.
