There was a discussion related to DLTK vs IMP on the newsgroup. Please
read following conversation thread for more information:
Also I'm happy to see reference Xtext here, which I love personally very
In few words, significant difference between DLTK and Xtext (DLTK and
IMP) is following (also I'm lost track of IMP, so following may be wrong
because based on outdated knowledge):
Both Xtext and IMP would help you to generate editors for DSLs or
virtually any language from the language definition (grammar). So very
roughly: you maintain grammar -- IMP/Xtext do the rest.
Opposite to Xtext and IMP, DLTK is focused on common
language-independent project infrastructure: source files,
folders/packages, indexes, searching for project elements/source code,
etc; and do not locked by specific parsing/language definition models.
So you'd have to contribute some language-specific stuff to DLTK
(starting from source code parsers), and DLTK will do the rest for your IDE.
So in theory DLTK is pretty complementary to Xtext/IMP, in practice
AFAIK no one tried to use DLTK with these projects.
