This Week in Grails (2011-18)

Sunday, May 08th, 2011

This is cool stuff especially for plugin developers since it’s now possible to ship DSLD descriptors that tell STS how to autocomplete arbitrary DSLs. The Database Migration plugin has a Liquibase DSL that closely mirrors the native XML syntax, so I’m hoping it’ll be straightforward to create one for that once I get some time to look at it.

GR8Conf is only one week away, and more presenter interviews have been published:
