How can I export Lightning components ?

Hi dear salesforce developers ,

I have built an integration between my company back-office application, Apex classes and Lightning components to build a front-end application.
Now the project is become mature, I'd like to version it ( I still do lots of enhancements and i'd like to keep backups of my previous versions ).

I saw the Eclipe plugin for Apex classes, and I can use it to export the Apex pages, but what about the Lightning components ?
I've browsed lots of forums but didn't find the answer yet.

Do anyone have a solution to export lightning components into files ? :)

Thanks & best regards

Make sure you are using apex API version 33.0

1. Open Eclipse package.xml
2. Use following package.xml code
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> 
<Package xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata">
 <types> 
<members>*</members> 
<name>AuraDefinitionBundle</name>
 </types>
 <version>33.0</version>
 </Package>
3. Right click on your Project Force.com -> Refresh from server.
