The strong force behind this project is Pieter Hintjes from Belgium.
Unfortunately two days ago he published his latest article on
Sad news. I hope his work will continue by the Open Source community

Subject: model oriented programming

So, Livecode is a scripting language. Whatever logic and data I string
together in LCS is converted by the engine into equivalent code in languages
like C. Does that make the LC engine a code generator? Seems like it does.

These guys take it one level farther back and start with a model which
defines a code generator which then creates code.

I'm trying to wrap my head around it.

They also use their code generator to generate their code generator.
