Handly initial contribution now available

by Vladimir Piskarev

Hard to believe it’s been a month since the creation review for the Eclipse Handly project was declared successful. And quite a busy month, I must say.

Just in case you’ve missed the proposal, Handly is a recently created Technology project at Eclipse. Inspired by JDT Java Model, it aims to provide a common foundation for language-oriented handle-based models. It also includes a layer of integration with Xtext. You can read more about the project proposal in my previous post.

It’s been our stated intention to make the initial contribution available to the community as soon as technically and legally possible. Today, I’m glad to announce that the initial contribution is now available (based on Parallel IP) in the project’s Git repository. You can clone the repository from git://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/handly/org.eclipse.handly.git. Please see the CONTRIBUTING guide in the repository’s root for general information on how to contribute to the project. Also, an architectural overview is available.

Early feedback would be most welcome, of course. It might be a great opportunity to participate and influence further development. We’re listening. Seriously :-)
