Import an existing git project into Eclipse

You have a git project you have already cloned locally. Now you need to open it in Eclipse.

In Eclipse, click File / Import. Filter on git.

Select Projects from Git or the new Projects from Git (smart import) option. Since I know my project has subprojects, I’ll go with that option.

Choose Existing local repository.

Select your repo.

Note that if you are importing projects in Eclipse you already have but have closed, you must first delete the projects (but leave the disk contents) to re-import them.
