Dynamic control of generators output-directories?

Hi,

is there a dynamic way to control the place where the generator finally puts its generated text-files? F.e. if i want to define a target-package in my own way (per user-input as string) or if i want to describe the structure of a multi-module-project with some elements referencing their owning module (generation of those elements should then take place within the appropriate - dynamically defined - target-module).

Thx,

Mirko

Hello, Mirko,

Yes, there's such a way. However, it isn't in open API so we can change it in the future. Take a look at the GenerateMPSBuild action in the plugin model of the jetbrains.mps.build.packaging language. You have to use a special action in order to invoke generation in this case.

P.S. Feel free to submit such a feature into our bug tracker so we will make such ability a part of the open API.

Regards,

Konstantin

I can't understand what's so difficult with this feature...

Someone should change the priority to major.

It is currently scheduled for 2.1 as far as I can see.
