Embedding Xtext in Your Website

Xtext is a language development framework that comes with web browser support. Its JavaScript-based API allows you to add language-specific features such as code completion and live validation to a text editor embedded in a website. In this session we will share our experience with Xtext’s web support gathered in the first year after its release (November 2015). We will show and explain how you can implement different use cases such as:

  • embedding an Xtext editor into a website,
  • connecting multiple editors with each other,
  • adding Xtext support to existing editors based on Ace, Orion, etc.,
  • building web forms working with Xtext,
  • hooking user input into a language infrastructure such as linking, scoping, validation, code generation, etc.,
  • being creative!
