First of all, happy new year! I’m writing this post to give some fresh news about the current state of DSL Forge.
Getting the tool to its current state wasn’t an easy task. At the time I was working for itemis, the prototype attracted customers attention, as it was a precursor in the area of domain-specific language web editors. Things were going in the right direction, however, for political reasons, the Xtext team at that time wanted to provide a new tool built from scratch.
That sounds weird right? Anyway, that was the reason why I left the company in July 2015 and started PlugBee, a software company specialized in Model-Driven Engineering. DSL Forge has evolved since the original prototype released in January 2014, the tool is now open sourced under the EPL licence. You can download it from here, you will also find initial documentation to get started. The code is also available on GitHub.
A reminder of what’s the tool for:
