The other week, version 2.0 of the NSF ODP Tooling project was released. This project allows for the compilation and generation of on-disk-project representations of NSFs without the use of Designer, and as part of a tree of Maven projects. This release has several important improvements:

- Full round-trip fidelity for NSFs<->ODPs to match Designer's behavior
- Local compilation and export on platforms supported by the Notes client or Domino
- Improvements to the Eclipse tooling to provide Design Element categories and XML editor hooks for DXL files
- Automatic generation of missing .metadata files; for example, for new XPages or resources added to the project outside of Designer
- Maven-side generation of plugin files for cross-IDE compatibility

I've recorded a video going over the example project included in the repository, which is itself available on GitHub.
