What is the input you take to generate magritte?

Lionel would like to have a kind of Crud on top of Pharo and it would be good for business.

    We had the same idea :)

Let me know if we can join forces to speed uo things.

    The first requirements I wrote was  to generate Spec UI directly.
    But I rather chose to make Magritte compatible with Spec.

    So from the Magritte description, we could generate Spec, Seaside ...

The CodeGenerator I wrote already generates Magritte code. If you load it in Pharo 5

Gofer it
    smalltalkhubUser: 'hernan' project: 'CodeGenerator';

Have a look at the usage examples:


If you have suggestions I would like to read.

        Hi Hernan,

        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
        and 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

        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. :)
