Welcome to MD²'s Web site
MD² (MD2) is a model-driven framework for cross-platform development of mobile applications. Based on a textual DSL, MD2 generates runnable native apps for Android and iOS.
- Download the first MD² release as a set of plug-ins for Eclipse (an up to date version will be added soon).
- See the Github repository for instructions on how to set up the current state of development.
MD2 has been developed by the Group for Practical Computer Science at the Department of Information Systems, University of Münster. It has been presented at several scientific conferences. The following publications describe MD² in detail:
