In the Force.com IDE (Eclipse) I was able to directly update the object file and save the changes to the server. An use case would be to add multiple fields in the object file xml so I did not have to manually create them via the front-end. Will it be a possibility to add this feature? Thanks,Terence.

Thank you for your post.
This feature is already present in The Welkin Suite.
You can pull your objects from Salesforce to your TWS project. After this please open the necessary object xml-file (you can find it in your project in the Solution explorer) and edit this file, add fields into this file.
Then please open Main Menu -> Build -> Deploy Objects. This option updates your objects on the server directly from the IDE.
I kindly ask you to inform me if you have any question or issues related to this functionality.
