Domain-Specific Languages (DSLs) make use of Model-Driven Engineering techniques to capture the essence of an expertise domain, and provide deep automation in repetitive tasks such as animation, documentation, analyses and code generation.
DSL users need powerful workbenches and editors to create new instances of their DSL, as well as performing routine tasks to ensure the correctness and the deployment of their models. Textual editors are nowadays easily customisable and support workbench deployment in a timely and efficient way.
Visual editors, on the contrary, are way more difficult to build, although recent research demonstrated substantial progress in recent years. Another difficult current challenge lies in animating those models in complex, interactive scenarios where automated transformations take place, but end-users inputs are also required. Ensuring that animations react in real-time, without loss of information and in synch with potentially different views of the same model represent new features that are necessary to tackle for ensuring wide adoption of visual DSLs.
A recent trend nowadays is to embed visual editors into web browsers (in order to, for example, simplifying the access to the editor, facilitating the update of new versions, or enabling collaborative work).
The project takes place in an industrial collaboration with CodingPark, a company based in Paris that creates educative online games. (http://codingpark.io/ )
