Hi there,

I would like to replace the ANTLR parser in Xtext with some other one, because I'd like to create an editor for a non-CFG grammar.
Therefore I've started to create a PEG parser generator which fulfills my needs.
Currently I try to create the EMF models (the metamodel is already generated by the parser).

Is there a way to replace ANTLR, or is it too deep integrated into Xtext?
Any hint or starting point would be great.

Thanks
Markus

Hi

If you really want to replace ANTLR in the editor, I'd rethink since
Xtext creates two parsers one specifically for the editor.

If a non-ANTLR parser will do, you might be interested in the
preliminary work I did on an Xtext grammar to LPG grammar
transformation. One day I might have more time and finish it. See
http://git.eclipse.org/c/ocl/org.eclipse.ocl.git at
examples/org.eclipse.ocl.examples.xtext2lpg.

Regards

Ed Willink
