Why add the Marketplace client to Studio?

The Eclipse Marketplace Client is a client for installing solutions listed on the Eclipse Marketplace directly from an Eclipse-based IDE such as Anypoint Studio.

Such solutions include the Darkest Dark Theme with DevStyle extension that colours your Studio with a selection of palates such as the Dark theme and the EGit, which adds integration for Git and TM Terminal which opens a terminal window directly in Studio.
