How to install a JavaScript editor for Eclipse?

I have a standard Eclipse running on an Ubuntu 14.10:

Eclipse Standard/SDK

Version: Luna Service Release 2 (4.4.2)
Build id: 20150219-0600
  1. I searched for javascript in the marketplace. But nothing jumped to my eye.
  2. I searched javascript editor eclipse on the web, which gave me JSDT ( But I couldn’t find it in the marketplace.
  3. I realised, that JSDT are budled within the WDT (Web Tools Platform;

It seems that I’m lacking some basic knowledge about eclipse.

  • Is it somehow possible to install JSDT without all the other stuff of the WTP?
  • When I’d like to use WTP, do I need a separate installation of Eclipse? (since WTP is also not in the marketplace)
  • Is there an JavaScript editor plugin that I can simply add to my existing Eclipse installation?
