Main features:

  • Conversions: tabs ↔ spaces (technically mature, works for whole directories and you can define exceptions)
  • Automatic actions when a file is stored (just activate them in the configuration mennu): remove trailing whitespaces and/or perform tabs↔spaces conversion on a “save” action in all text-based Eclipse editors.
  • You can add new buttons to the toolbar: “Show whitespace in editor”, “Save All”, “open File”
  • See for a complete overview.
