as far as I understand, I have to regenerate a model when I make changes to it.
The fastest way seems to activate "Incremental generation" in the settings
and press the shortcut for "Make Solution" after a change. The model automatically saves.
"Make model" doesn't have a key binding by default.1.
Is this the best way to do this?
I'd like to automatically transfer a generated file for example per ftp to another device.
I achieved nearly what I wanted by exporting my language as an Intellij Idea plugin.
Then I press "Make project", the files are generated and I can use Tools->Deployment
and transfer the generated files when they change.2.
Are there similar shortcuts as in 1) in Intellij Idea (For example "Make model")?
I don't always want to make the whole project.3.
Can I do the same in MPS when I install the plugin, that contains the deployment tools?
Or am I only able to preview the generated text?4.
Can I automate the previous steps? For example:
- A shortcut/button is pressed while editing -> Model is saved, model is regenerated,
files are generated.
- files can be automatically transfered.
The main question is if it is possible to integrate my languages in a way that
they can be used in this way: I edit a model using my DSl -> I save it -> Another device/computer/programm... receives
the generated files and uses them as input. Or is the only solution custom persistence?
