Hi Everyone,

I have successfully override my templates using Acceleo's dynamic overriding capability. But this only works when my original generator plugin project and the dynamic plugin project are both inside my eclipse workspace.

I have also observed the following when I run my original generator and modify a dynamic template while the generator is still running:
1) Modify dynamic template in my eclipse workspace - the applied changes were generated(auto-build happens).
2) Modify dynamic template using other editor(i.e. notepad++) - the changes are not generated.

What I want to achieve here is to run my generator and customize the templates dynamically while the generator is running.

So, is there a way on how to we can expose Acceleo templates and be able to modify them outside eclipse? Or maybe tell Acceleo where to get the mtl templates to generate.

You may be able to do this by using the APIs of the Acceleo engine (I never tried it so I'm not 100% sure), have a look at AcceleoDynamicTemplateRegistry.
