Full Extension List

This is a full list of all the extensions that are contained in MPS-extensions.

Base Language Extensions

Name Description
de.itemis.mps.structurecheck adds a statement to baselanguage that allows to check the structure of a node
com.mbeddr.mpsutil.blutil utilities for baselanguage
com.mbeddr.mpsutil.blutil.genutil baselanguage generator utilities


Name Description
com.mbeddr.mpsutil.editor.querylist enables the definition of editors over smodel queries as opposed to only a fixed concept structure
com.mbeddr.mpsutil.treenotations tree-like notation for MPS Editors
de.itemis.mps.editor.bool additional editor cells are available to represent Boolean values in the editor with a representation other than “true” and “false”
de.itemis.mps.editor.collapsible additional editor cells that can be colllapsed
de.itemis.mps.editor.diagram diagrammatic notation for MPS editors
de.itemis.mps.editor.dropdown additional editor cells for displaying a dropdown menu
de.itemis.mps.editor.enumeration additional editor cells for displaying a group of checkboxes as an enum
de.itemis.mps.editor.math mathematical notation for MPS Editors
de.itemis.mps.tooltips (deprecated/removed) MPS editor extension to show tooltips at certain parts in the editor
de.itemis.mps.celllayout celllayout extensions
de.itemis.mps.grammarcells A grammar-like abstraction for writing editors for textual patterns such as flags, operations, parentheses, etc. Specifying a grammar cell is compact but has enough semantic richness to automatically generate actions (wrappers, side-transforms, substitutions, and delete actions) for the pattern you specified in the grammar cell.
de.slisson.mps.conditionalEditor A conditional editor is almost like an aspect. It can be applied “around” existing editor, and whether it applies or not is determined by a condition and the applicable concept (similar to a pointcut in AO). Using this approach, it is now possible to essentially decorate any editor with any decoration based on arbitrary conditions.
de.slisson.mps.editor.multiline an editor component for properties that supports wrapping of long lines and new lines by pressing ENTER
de.slisson.mps.richtext an editor component for mixing plain text and MPS nodes
de.slisson.mps.tables tabular notation for MPS editors
de.itemis.mps.linenumbers.plugin line numbers for the editor
de.itemis.mps.editor.htmlcell HTML-based editor cells


Name Description
com.dslfoundry.plaintextflow improved version of plaintextgen
com.dslfoundry.plaintextgen this plugin is an alternative text generator for MPS, using the standard model to model generation mechanisms (node macros, loop macros, property macros, etc.) to generate plain text, as opposed to MPS’s programmatical textgens.


Name Description
de.q60.mps.shadowmodels a shadow model is a non-editable model derived from existing models by model-to-model transformations.
org.modelix.model alternative model API with better support for persistent data structures


Name Description
MPS.ThirdParty jars and stubs used by MPS (it includes the previous standalone Jackson stubs for json serialization)
org.apache.commons jars and their stubs to use Apache Commons Library in MPS

Tools, Views and other Plugins

Name Description
com.mbeddr.mpsutil.projectview abstraction on top of MPS lower-level API to create custom views in the view tool window (like logical view, file view, etc.)
de.itemis.mps.selection with this plugin you can select nodes in MPS using the mouse. It also allows invoking intentions over a selection of nodes in an nlist


Name Description
com.mbeddr.mpsutil.intentions enables the grouping of different intentions under one label
com.mbeddr.mpsutil.modellisteners Mechanism for installing callbacks that listen to changes in specific parts of models. Use only when you have no other MPS mechanism for achieving what you need, because many listeners can quickly eat performance.
com.mbeddr.mpsutil.serializer helper classes that can serialize nodes to xml and deserialize them from xml
de.slisson.mps.hacks (deprecated) various small extensions: editor utilities, generation plan extensions for better cross-model generation, reflection language
de.itemis.mps.modelmerger (deprecated) extension that allows to merge models
de.itemis.model.merge extension that allows to merge models
de.itemis.mps.nodeversioning The node versioning extension gives support for storing different states/versions of a node inside of the model
