A new screen-cast series on building language extensions

Markus Voelter and Vaclav Pech sat down together and recorder an introductory MPS screen-cast series featuring some of the fundamental principles of language extensions in MPS. To learn the basics of MPS tune JetBrains TV, make yourself comfortable and have a look.

There are currently four videos available for you to download. A few more demos are coming soon, so stay tuned.

  1. Creating a new statement
  2. Creating tabular expressions
  3. Creating new types and literals
  4. Language Extensions – Describing the dataflow

Please, don’t forget to leave a comment to let us know how you enjoyed the demos and/or what topics you’d like to see covered in our future screencasts.

Develop with pleasure!

    It would be nice to read or see how to build custom branded MPS-based IDE, how to make it look (and feel) not just like “MPS with our plugins” but like something friendly for domain experts (no MPS-related actions, tools, etc). These are the topics not covered in detail in the docs. Thanks in advance.
