Eco: An Editor for Language Composition
Eco is a prototype editor for editing composed languages. It is not feature complete, it is not intended for production, and it does have bugs. Eco is distributed under a BSD/MIT license.
At a minimum you will need to install:
- Python 3 https://www.python.org/download/
- PyQt5 http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/software/pyqt/download5
- Py http://py.readthedocs.io/en/latest/install.html
On Unix machines, you can reasonably expect your distribution to have packages for Python and PyQt. You may need to install Py using Pip or similar (see the link above).
If you wish to see visualisations of parse trees, you may optionally install:
- GraphViz http://www.graphviz.org/Download.php
- PyDot https://code.google.com/p/pydot/
- Pygame https://www.pygame.org/
To run Eco, use the bin/eco file:
A small tutorial to get you started with the basics of Eco can be found here.
Windows Subsystem for Linux running Ubuntu
If you are having trouble running Eco on the Windows Subsystem running Ubuntu, follow these instructions:
# Install Python3 sudo apt-get install python3 libxkbcommon-x11-0 # Install dependencies via pip python3 -m pip install --user PyQt5 py # Optional dependencies to visualise parse trees sudo apt-get install graphviz python3 -m pip install --user pydot pygame
