Running MPS headless

Hi, how could I run MPS headless (no IDE displayed)?

I would need that for two goals:

* run tests on Jenkins

* have an instance of MPS running and instruct it to change models, so that I can drive the editing of MPS models from outside MPS

How do you suggest to do that?

The standard supported way is to generate an Ant script and then run MPS through it. The build language documentation should give you the details - https://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/MPSD33/Build+Language

Using ANT, Steps are:

- Load libs and plugins.

- Fetch Dependency and Load them.

- Generate the required Model

- Execute your generated code.

For everything MPS provides targets.
