I’ve often been asked if Adobe was going to do an eclipse plug-in for Pixel Bender. It’s been something that we definitely wanted to do, but I wasn’t sure when we would get to it. Joa Ebert decided to take advantage of the PBUtil command-line application that we ship with the Pixel Bender Toolkit SDK to create his own eclipse plug-in, PBDT. He even came up with a way to get Pixel Bender development working with Linux (another often requested feature).

I’ve been playing with it a bit (it integrates with Flex and FDT pretty well) and it is a cool alternative way to do Pixel Bender development.

Thanks to Joa for his contribution to the community!
