iPhonical offers a model-driven approach to build large parts of iPhone applications with domain-specific languages. Based on the Eclipse Modeling Project with components such as Xtext and Xpand the tool integrates well into the Mac programming environment Xcode to assist the iPhone developer with her remaining work.
In this session I will demonstrate how tightly Eclipse-based solutions can be integrated into existing tool chains outside the world of Eclipse. From scratch, I will use DSLs to develop and enhance an iPhone App that connects to a Rails application and make it to a fancy eye-catcher by weaving in manually written code.
