You can find more detailed documentation and examples at ddk.tools.avaloq.com.


  • Take Eclipse IDE for Java Developers (i.e. 2022-12)
  • Install Xtext SDK 2.31 (currenlty DDK is based on Xtext 2.31)
  • There is no public update site for DDK yet, so
    • import all plugins from this repository into a new Eclipse workspace
    • change current target to ddk.target
    • compile and export the four features available in the workspace (runtime, and the DDK itself)
  • Install the exported features into your Eclipse

DSL Developer Kit is an extension layer to Xtext built for active Xtext users. It extends Xtext runtime to handle more sophisticated cases in DSL design, to support scaling for larger models and better monitoring and recovery in headless frameworks based on Xtext. DDK comes with a few handy small DSLs helping to standardize implementations of tools for DSLs. Read the introduction.
