Team Explorer Everywhere without Eclipse

If you are a Linux/Unix/Mac user and you want to connect to Team Foundation Server, you can use the Team Explorer Everywhere(TEE) client, an Eclipse based plugin.

I got a question from some customers wanted to use the plug-in to manage TFS applications in a stand-alone fashion even though they were not developing in an Eclipse based IDE.

You have 2 options in this case:

  • Option 1: Use the command line tools.
  • Option 2: If you prefer a visual experience, you can install the plug-in into the Eclipse Platform Runtime Binary (a cut down version of Eclipse without all the language tools for code editing etc).

Remark: Don’t forget that a SP1 was released for TEE, so use the version available here.
