Sirius + Xtext = ♥


Xtext provides rich textual editing for your domain - aka "your own IDE" while Eclipse Sirius makes rich graphical editing a breeze for any kind of EMF model, but can they work together ?

This talk will walk through all the possible integrations between those two technologies, from concurrently using the Xtext and Sirius editors on top of the same files to integrating the Xtext completion to a diagram or to a popup editor. At first sight it looks like an easy match but several things might go wrong, things to consider upfront depending on the level of integration which is expected.

True love requires a deep understanding of each others, you will learn how Xtext sees the world, how Sirius does and will see demos of DSLs tooling where both technologies are used at their full potential.

Expect demos and code based on popular Xtext DSLs out there and a presentations of the latest progress made in Sirius 3.0 regarding this integration.
