Extend sysl to do anything!
In order to easily reuse and extend Sysl across systems, the Sysl compiler translates Sysl files into an intermediate representation expressed as protocol buffer messages. These protobuf messages can be consumed in your favorite programming language and transformed to your desired output. In this way you are creating your own Sysl exporter.
Using the protoc compiler you
can translate the definition file of the intermediate representation
pkg/proto/sysl.proto into your preferred programming language in a one-off
step or on every build. You can then easily consume Sysl models in your
programming language of choice in a typesafe way without having to write a ton
of mapping boilerplate. With that you can create your own tailored output
diagrams, source code, views, integrations or other desired outputs.
Sysl is currently targeted at early adopters. The current focus is to improve documentation and usability, especially error messages and warnings.
