DSL Maturing, next steps [message #1023014] Sat, 23 March 2013 02:06 Go to next message

So my DSL work with XText is going well and I'm starting to think about next steps.

I'd like to work with some other UI things like:

  • Defining a new project type that will pre-generate some files and directories.
  • Give my DSL a default run configuration
  • Defining some preferences
  • Working on a Graphical editor
  • Adding different refactor choices
  • Activating or implementing Source menu choices (toggle comment, generate comment, etc.)

Where do I go for documentation/tutorials/etc. on these kinds of things?

I know this is outside the XText realm, but I figure these kinds of things are logical next steps and some people here probably have some good recommendations.

Maybe I can help with some things.

_Defining a new project type that will pre-generate some files and directories
I guess you'd have to look into Plugin/Expansion creation for that, specifically org.eclipse.ui.newWizards.
This is something that might help:

_Give my DSL a default run configuration
I don't exactly know what you mean by this, surely it couldn't be as simple as editing the Run Configuration in Eclipse itself? (Run - Run Configurations...).
As for creating a whole product/export, you might wanna try here for a start:
Note that this is focused on Xtext 1.x, so you'll have to make adjustments.

_Working on a Graphical editor
The Documentation might give a starting point. The Editor linked works under 2.3.1, bidirectionally, but is a mere prototype.

Excuse the links in the way they are, site restrictions for new users.
