Aptana Studio/Eclipse set up

I write a little description how you can create a good workspace for programming. I am using Aptana for purpose because it contains a lot of useful features.

Step 1.
Install Aptana:http://www.aptana.com/products/studio3/download
or eclipse: http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads

Step 2.
Install pydev. Go to Help → Install Software
You should add this url: http://pydev.org/updates

Step 3.
Adding interpreter to the application.
For Maya 2011 add C:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2011/bin/mayapy.exe
Check all checkboxes, but remove site-packages path afterwards add
(Path To Your Pymel/pymel-1.0.2)/extras/completion/py/
and finally add back the site-packages path.Check on the picture the order.

Step 4.
Window→ Open Perspective→ Other…→ Pydevmake sure that the PyDev Package Explorer is open: Window→ Show View→ Pydev Package Explorer
In the Pydev Package Explorer, Right click and select New→ project→ Pydev(folder)→ Pydev Project

Step 5.
Right click on the project in explorer, Import→General→File system

Step 6.
Follow the setup based on picture. You can add filters, if you want.

Step 7.
Adding new file to the project:
New→Pydev module
