Edit: This answer is outdated. A Play Eclipse plugin has been written, as @Baztoune says.

There is no Play 2 plugin for Eclipse at the time I’m writing these lines. However, there is an eclipsify sbt command, provided by the Play 2 sbt plugin, which is able to generate an Eclipse project from a Play 2 application.

You won’t get syntax highlighting, contextual completion or code navigation inside Play 2 templates, but you can have them to be automatically compiled when saved by using the ~run sbt command (instead of just run). Check the Eclipse “General −> Workspace −> Refresh using native hooks or polling” option is enabled so it will take compiled templates changes into account.

I just came across Scala IDE Play2 plugin for Eclipse Indigo/Juno and Scala IDE. The current features are

  • Syntax Highlighting (routes and templates)
  • Code completion (templates)
  • Formatter (routes)
  • Hyperlinking (routes and templates)

Note that hyperlinking to Java files is not supported for now. Also there are some limitations for the code completion feature, just take some time to read the doc. I didn’t try it myself as I’m not working with Play2 right now, but thought it might be helpful for someone.

Yes. That’s Scala IDE.

Is there an eclipse plugin for Play2?

I was unable to get this working at all starting from bare Eclipse, as many sources have suggested doing. The problem seems to be incompatible dependencies that only show up after much wasted time. The Scala IDE route eliminated this problem.
