Xtext, Software Development

CFEngine workbench based on Eclipse and Xtext

If you're fed up with the bad usability of your server maintenance tool then this may just be the thing for you: itemis Xtext expert Boris Holzer came up with an idea of a more usability-friendly tool and prepared a screencast showing you what it's all about.

How does it help you?

CFEngine is a tool for system administrators that “has a powerful language and tools to define the desired state of your infrastructure”. The tool automates maintenance of server infrastructure.

The editor shown in this video is driven by the idea of transferring the usability that software developers enjoy in IDEs into usage scenarios for system administrators (which some may think is crazy). :)
