Hello everyone in the Eclipse Xtext community.
I recently used Xtext to create a modeling language that I defined myself. At present, I have only implemented the text editor of this DSL, but I also need to design a corresponding graphics editor for the DSL I designed. What should I do next? How to do it? Or is there any example tutorial that I can refer to?
I have just read the book "Implementing Domain-Specific Languages with Xtext and Xtend Second Edition", as well as the official Xtext documentation and grammar.
So far I have only achieved the following results.

Did you look into the Sirius framework ?

I learned some information about Sirius, but I still don't know how to use the Sirius framework to graphically design the DSL I defined. Currently, I have generated the ECore metamodel, but what do I need to do to integrate it with Scirius? Woolen cloth?

Hi, maybe Eclipse GLSP is what you are looking for?https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/ecd.glsp

I just took a look at GLSP and I found it to be a good approach, but I'm not sure if GLSP can support synchronicity of text editing and graphics editing?

Hello Peppa!

You can also take a look at the Eclipse Graphical Editing Framework to get some inspiration!

These tutorials are a little difficult to find, but are very good at introducing how Sirius works:
