From the main menu, choose Window/Preferences, and select Cedalion Preferences from the left-hand pane.
Users who chose the native installation should perform the following:
- Select normal and symbol fonts. It is important that the symbol font shall have a good coverage of Unicode.
- Under “Prolog Interpreter” enter the path to the swipl executable on your system. You can use the “Browse” button for that.
All Installations: Base Cedalion Image
Regardless of installation, you need to set up an Initial Cedalion Image file or URL. A Cedalion image is a file containing a complete Cedalion program. By setting up a URL to such an image you import all the work done elsewhere, and all projects in this workspace can depend on this work.
- The minimal image is the bootstrap image: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/brosenan/cedalion/master/bootstrap.cedimg
- The most feature-rich image is the cloudlog1 image: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/brosenan/cloudlog1/master/cedalion/cl1/cl1.cedimg
The latter is designed especially for implementing Web applications, and contains the Cloudlog language as a DSL, but it also contains “goodies” such as BDD support.
Just copy one of these to the Cedalion Image field.
After setting up preferences, choose File/Restart from the main menu. This will restart Eclipse, and force the Cedalion plug-in to read the image from the URL.
It is also important to restart Eclipse after importing a project to the workspace or after removing files. The Cedalion plug-in loads the files in the workspace only when starting. It does not identify situations when a file is added or removed.
Restarting Eclipse is also important when the Cedalion Workbench (the editor) starts to slow down. This slowdown is a result of a resource leak, and can be solved with a restart.
Bottom line, if you did anything out of the ordinary or the Cedalion Workbench is acting strange — File/Restart.
