I wrote some time ago two basic code generators (both in Pharo) from UML-ified
FAMIX for a particular user (so there are some domain-specific patterns),
one for Pharo syntax (
and one for VW syntax (
(the code is here
The most pain I had was with expressing templateable code to which I could just
plug specific data, I wanted to look at QVT but didn't have the time yet.
But it would be interesting to see if your generator could address such issues;
plus soon I want to iterate on my generators to have more live interaction (so
the code is generated on the fly as the model is created, although I am using
Pharo Refactoring engine for now, which is also quite powerful.)
Addionally, Lionel (in cc) is working on some meta system generating classes
with magritte descriptions.
So it would be cool if we could have some really cool generator that could do
many cool things. :)
