System Designer, an IDE for building applications driven by the model
No matter the frameworks you use and the code you write, the most important is the model that you define to create your application. System Designer helps you to design this model and to generate the classes and components to build your application.
Design your application with UML.
System Designer uses UML, a standard, to define your model. So you probably already know how to create a model in System Designer even if you have never run it.
The definition of the model is stored on a JSON format called MSON. With MSON you can define types, classes, one to one / one to many relationships and multi inheritance between classes.
Code the behavior of your model.
Once you have created your model, System Designer generates the skeletons of all your methods. You only have then to add your code to implement them.
System Designer provides you helpers to manage your components. You can easily navigate threw components to create your application.
Create components graphically.
There is no need to code to instantiate a component. Create a component in System Designer is like creating a document in a NoSQL Database.
In fact, System Designer acts as an ODM (Object-Document Mapper) to manage your components as NoSQL Documents.
Run your application.
You can run your application directly from System Designer and then export it to HTML, JSON or a Node.js module. You can also push your application into your Github repository.
You can also design an application that runs on Node.js without restarting the server. In that case, all your modification in System Designer will be send to your application.
Because you have defined a model for your application, a Dynamic Type Check is done on every action of your application. All warnings are send and shown in System Designer.
