Ideas for Google Summer of Code/Visual interface to write structural transfer rules

From Apertium
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Apertium structural transfer rules are currently encoded in XML-based formats. These are very overt and clear, but clumsy and may be hard to write. The idea is to design a visual programming language of the style of like Scratch, where jigsaw-puzzle-style pieces corresponding to statements and control structures fit only if the syntax is right.


  • Write a graphical user interface to write structural transfer rules (one that reads in (a subset of) the current XML-based language, allows for a graphical, intuitive editing of the rules, and writes compilable .t1x, .t2x or .t3x files)
