Dear modellers,

A master student of mine, Oddvar Hungnes, is developing a prototype of
a DSL framework for a new visual syntax, based on blocks fitting
together. He has made a demo
(http://folk.ntnu.no/oddvahu/jigsawemfeditor1.png) and survey, that I
hope you will participate in:

The Jigsaw Language Toolkit
paper(http://ojs.bibsys.no/index.php/NIK/article/download/254/217)
shows that the jigsaw puzzle metaphor, used in applications like
Scratch (https://scratch.mit.edu/), can be used to visualize
syntactical constraints in languages with complex type systems and
static type checking.

This means that it is possible to apply a jigsaw-based visual syntax to
design an editor for the Eclipse Modeling Framework. We are
implementing such an editor as part of a research project, and we need
testers who are willing to provide feedback on the prototype and the
project in general.

If you have the time, please consider answering our survey, found here:

A test build, configured as an Ecore editor, can be downloaded here:
