I am new to the world of DSL and the like. A month ago, I came across Federico Tomassetti blog on DSL. I bought a bunch of books based on his recommendations
The project I chose was to create my own DSL to track expenses.
I got to the point where I manage to create my own parser See the screenshots at the bottom of this SO question. https://stackoverflow.com/q/46872931/80353
However, I am at the point where I am slightly lost as to how to continue.
While googling, I came across your community threads on MPS and I recall Tomassetti mentioning this before. I am okay to start from scratch. Basically I am looking to see if I can create a DSL where people simply type in DSL instructions or perform some other kind of action with the DSL that results in generating excel files with some data mentioned in the DSL.
My main purpose is to learn DSL not so much as creating an actual expense tracker ( i can do this using my knowledge of Django and web app development in general) I purposely chose this topic to narrow my scope for learning that's all.
My question is assuming I am looking to build this expense tracker DSL using MPS how do I go about it? Is there any change in the scope so that I can do this with MPS?
