Reflections on the Birth of Spoofax

OASIcs-EVCS-2023-14.pdf (0.5 MB)


The Spoofax Language Workbench is one of the many successful research projects to come out of Eelco’s tremendously productive career, as evidenced by the Most Influential Paper designation awarded at OOPSLA 2020 to the famous 2010 paper by Lennart and Eelco [Lennart C. L. Kats and Eelco Visser, 2010]. In connection with the award, Eelco wrote an excellent retrospective [Eelco Visser, 2021].
Here, I will reflect briefly on the birth of the Spoofax, subject to omissions and inaccuracies, as the topic may be of interest to hardcore fans. Eelco was my PhD co-supervisor, and I was fortunate to be part of his group during the inception of the project.
