Integrating with other environments

MetaEdit+ is an open environment and provides numerous ways to integrate with other tools. All the models created with MetaEdit+ can always be exported to any other environment — using for example the same Generator Editor you use to implement your generators.

The MetaEdit+ API allows you to build sophisticated tool integration between MetaEdit+ and other tools.  Tool integration mechanisms include:

  1. Programmatic access to model data and MetaEdit+ functions via API
  2. Importing and exporting models with other tools
  3. Command line parameters for automating MetaEdit+ operations
  4. Executing external commands and parsing files via generators
