  • Project of the week - VisualLangLab
    • If you are observing the crop of new languages springing up at present (like Kotlin, Ceylon, etc.) and think to yourself "I could do better than that", well, now's your chance.
    • VisualLangLab is a graphical tool for designing language grammars.
    • The tool gives you the ability to examine the resulting abstract syntax tree from a code snippet passed through your grammar, and helps you write the grammar you want.
    • And it's not just for full blown languages. The project could be used for developing free-form domain specific languages just as easily.
