To be honest I do not come to SCN that offen as in the past. Some changes at work + changes made to SCN made me to be present more on twitter and follow all the new stuff there. But I saw lately the article about Darkest Dark Theme (https://blogs.sap.com/2017/07/20/darkest-dark-theme-for-eclipse-with-adt/) which I was promoting while ago on twitter and to my supprise I saw that Suhas Saha was really happy to know about this theme, which I thought all eclipse users already know.

 

Then I just realised that not everyone follow twitter and there can be a difference between what is published here and there. So I’ve decided to post here also a short information about ABAP Favorites plugin for Eclipse. So also people who only follow SCN have an idea about it.

 

I will not copy the content of my blog post here (which I want to update soon), but I’ll give the video which is describing the functionality of the plugin.

 

To install it you need to go to Eclipse Marketplace and search for abap.

 

Once you have it installed you can add transactions, URL or development objects to the favorites views

 

 

 

Bellow you can find the short video describing it’s functions.

 

 

Feel free to join the project on github: https://github.com/fidley/ABAPFavorites/

 

Have fun

    Hi Lukasz,

    thanks for realizing that i don’t follow Twitter. Although i have a twitter handle, i don’t use it. Thanks for sharing this nice plugin, already installed it 🙂

    BR, Suhas

    PS – I don’t tweet, i haven’t seen a single episode of GoT; maybe i’m turning into a dinosaur 😛

    as a non-twitter user and someone still hoping SAP Community will survive somehow, I say: thanks for posting here! 🙂

     

    best

    Joachim

    PS: neither did I see any episode of GoT…

    Hi Łukasz,

    I think if you managed to make a favorite list of tables/view and able to view it on the eclipse, everyone will love you.

      Donnie,

      it’s enough my wife loves me, everyone that would be to much 🙂  I know Queen song – “Too Much Love Will Kill You” too good 🙂 hehe

      To be honest this shouldn’t be hard I guess, the question is what you mean by viewing it in eclipse? Opening in dictionary, SQL Console or?

      Cheers

        Hi Łukasz,

        AFAIK, currently table viewing in ABAP Development perspective is done by looking at each package the table resides and then it will open transaction SE11 when we double-click the table name. There is not even a way to look for table name without opening the GUI screen.

        Considering how Eclipse view screen is even smaller than SAP GUI screen, it’s terribly ineffective to browse table entries on it. The table browser in the HANA Development is better, but somehow it’s not easy to look and the additional authorization makes it even more bother to do.

        I feel that SAP should be the one making this happen, but they didn’t do anything close until now.

            I’m not aware of this Data Preview, mostly because I didn’t stay waiting for the long right-click response.

            It seems quite OK for me.

            If double clicking at the favorites table could call the data preview, then it’s great.

                So far with newest version you can add tables, views and message classes to Dev Objects favorites and it will open SE11 or message editor. But the data preview is also nice so I’ll see where I can add it.

      Hi Stefan,

      so far I have no access to the system where CDS views are available 🙁 So I wouldn’t be able to test it and to check internal type for ABAP CDS views.

       

      Cheers
