Example: Implement a flowchart GMF editor using EuGENia

   val Node[*] nodes;
   val Transition[*] transitions;

@gmf.node(label="name", label.icon="false")

@gmf.link(label="name", source="source", target="target", target.decoration="arrow")
class Transition {
   attr String name;
   ref Node#outgoing source;
   ref Node#incoming target;

class Subflow extends Flowchart, Node{

class Action extends Node {

class Decision extends Node {
// Set text of transitionLabel to empty string
var transitionLabel = GmfGraph!Label.all.
transitionLabel.text = "";

// Add bold font to actionLabel
var actionLabel = GmfGraph!Label.all.

// Add italic font to actionLabel
var decisionLabel = GmfGraph!Label.all.
decisionLabel.font = new GmfGraph!BasicFont;
decisionLabel.font.style = GmfGraph!FontStyle#ITALIC;
var genPlugin = GmfGen!GenPlugin.all.first();

What's this?

In this example we use EuGENia to implement a flowchart GMF editor, and EOL to polish its appearance.

What are .emf files?

.emf files are Ecore metamodels expressed using the Emfatic textual syntax.
