Multiple Workspaces in Eclipse

If you're on the point where all your projects are flooded on your Eclipse package explorer, chances are very difficult to find other library projects when working on a project that references those projects. One way to organize your Eclipse projects is to switch workspaces.  To switch workspaces, go to Eclipse > File > Switch Workspace.

This is a great solution but you will loose all your settings.  Settings like keybindings, code formats, and custom templates are gone.  To set the settings to your new workspace, just copy the folder from your old workspace to your new workspace.

$ cp {old_workspace}/.metadata/.plugins/.org.eclipse.core.runtime/.settings {new_workspace}/

Restart Eclipse.
