Spray Graphiti – Xtext for the Eyes

I’ve come to love Xtext. It’s powerful out of the box, simple enough to grasp and the rough edges cut you just once (i.e. after you put tape over them, the hurting stops).

But sometimes, a picture says more than a thousand words. Unfortunately, creating a graphical editor is still a daunting task. Which probably explains why most graphical editors aren’t worth the shadow the mouse pointer casts over them.

If we only had a compact language to define UI editors … but wait, we have. Or rather we could have with a bit of help with Xtext.

Welcome project Spray. Spray is a DSL to create Graphiti editors.
