I downloaded and installed OH2 development environment succesfully strictly according to the video and descriptions in the WIKI.
But I have hundreds of compilation error in the packages downloaded from GITHUB.
Typically these kind of errors :
> AbstractItemsProposalProvider cannot be resolved to a type. ItemsProposalProvider.xtend /org.eclipse.smarthome.model.item.ui/src/org/eclipse/smarthome/model/ui/contentassist line: 21 /org.eclipse.smarthome.model.item.ui/src/org/eclipse/smarthome/model/ui/contentassist/ItemsProposalProvider.xtend Xtend Problem
Does anybody have an idea how to proceed ?
Which packages have you selected on the installer (in step 4)? The projects
org.eclipse.smarthome.model.* are not imported to your workspace in any situation - and if this now happens, this would be clearly a bug of the IDE install.
Thanks Kai for the quick response.
I haven’t explitcilty installed any packages, just as shown in your video, I selected in the Eclipse Installer “Project/OpenHAB/OpenHAB Development” with the important double click and that did the rest.
But when I just watch the video again, I see that my packages look like different, than those in the video.
Here is a screenshot
Your IDE shows “Eclipse SmartHome” in the title, this indicates that you have selected some wrong option.
I just tried it: Selecting in step 4 “Github.com/openHAB” entry, double click “openHAB Development”, I get this setup:
Just tested the installation path you described ( also in the WIKI) - , (not the one in the YOUTUBE- video.)
It worked ! So perhaps withdraw the YOUTUBE- video.
Thank you very much for your assistance ! Highly appreciated.
I will try to develop a binding for an IP-Camera (from UPCAM.de) with a more generic approach to IP- cameras.
Do you of any such ambitions or similar attempts ?
In the known bindings I did not find anything.
Are we talking about the same video?
On the docu, I have already put a note that step 4 in the video is outdated - but I still feel that it can be useful nonetheless. I’d also love to create an updated one, but simply lacking the time (and no other volunteers were found yet )
Got it going : This is the setup of the Eclipse installer that turns everything into bright:
Yes, that’s the one video. Following that path shows the errors I mentioned.
Anyway, I’ve managed to get it running, but now I’m missing the binding skeleton scripts mentioned in this video “openHAB 2 - Getting Started with Binding Development” .
I’m somewhat on a wrong path. It’s a bit confusing for a newbie.
Ok, this is outdated in the video as well - so I agree that it is too confusing and thus I removed the link now.
Look at the documentation instead. It states:
go into your git repository under git/openhab2-addons/addons/binding and call the script
any updated link to the documentation, please? The links pointed out here are pointing to 404 github pages.
I have around 300 compilation errors.
I’ve imported everything, should I just import “Runtime” and “OH2 Add-ons”?
Apart thant that I also have “Other projects”, “ESH Extensions”, “OH1 Add-ons”, “Infrastructure”.
