use the "arduino" core from the "arduino" vendor
Using this syntax allow us to reduce the minimum set of files needed to define a new "hardware" to just the boards.txt file.
have a Linux environment, and I need an IDE which is more professional than Arduino IDE

@Jantje, I'm using a fresh install of the nightly build in Juno.
Just wanted to share a problem and workaround for an issue I had using the plugin on Mac:I installed the plugin and accidentally selected the Arduino IDE 1.6.4 (which I'd forgotten was not supported).
I then created a new project but the build couldn't find the avr-g++ command because the Arduino.app path was missing.
I changed the plugin settings to use Arduino IDE 1.6.1 but the old paths were still being used to Arduino IDE 1.6.4 in the org.eclipse.cdt.core.prefs file (which I believe is used to generate the makefile).To fix this and get the paths .....
I'm nit sure how you can forget 1.6.4 is not supported as the plugin tells you so
This was an issue but has been fixed. Are you sure you have the latest version of the nightly?
You need to go into project properties->arduino and select apply. This should fix this.
Anyways arduino:arduino is not supported by the plugin see this github issue https://github.com/jantje/arduino-eclipse-plugin/issues/158For something else and with the change for the boardsmanager I considered to implement it but it turned out that even with the changes for the boards manager, it is not that easy. So I stopped searched for an easier way found it and deleted the code.
