I am trying to dowload eclipse plugin from following website http://download.scala-ide.org/ but site is not working. is there any alternative site for plugin?
A quick dig shows their DNS is maybe under ddos attack.
$ dig scala-ide.org ns ; <<>> DiG 9.11.3-1ubuntu1.16-Ubuntu <<>> scala-ide.org ns ;; global options: +cmd ;; Got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: SERVFAIL, id: 61722 ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 1
Probably essentially nobody is using eclipse with scala-ide for some years now, and it may not be maintained. The common tooling is either
- Metals with VS-Code/Emacs/Vim/some other editor, or
- IntelliJ Idea with the scala plugin.
Yeah, AFAIK I was one of the last people using the Eclipse plugin, and I gave up several years ago. I believe it’s entirely unmaintained for the time being.
It’s suffering from Distributed Denial Of Development.
