Eclipse changing project type to FRC project

We imported a project from github as a generic project in eclipse. Now we need to change it to a FRC/WPIlib project. Does anyone know how to do this?

Close eclipse, then open your project’s “.project” file in a text editor. Under <natures> add


<nature>edu.wpi.first.wpilib.plugins.core.nature.FRCProjectNature</nature>

Then start eclipse again and it should be a wpilib project.

Next time you import something from github, choose the “New project wizard” option and make it a wpilib project directly.

Thanks, doing that worked just fine for us. :smiley:
