I’m presently engaged on meta-model transformation and the coevolution of fashions. I’ve already finished some sort of a cutting-edge, and the subsequent step in my analysis could be to gather some (ideally quite a lot of) meta-models and their historical past to research the best way individuals often rework them. The ultimate purpose will probably be to develop an answer to assist individuals to coevolve their meta-models and fashions simpler.
Nevertheless, I’m presently caught on the “acquire meta-models and their historical past”-step.
My preliminary concept was to do a Google-search, which didn’t lead me a lot additional, as I have not discovered any info on the existence of such a database or assortment. The second thought I had was to search for GitHub, and perhaps write a brief program to extract meta-models and their historical past.
Though this appears like an excellent concept (at the least to me), I’ve bumped into some difficulties:
- how one can discover the meta-models on GitHub
- many of the meta-models haven’t got a historical past (ie their historical past is a single preliminary commit) so they don’t seem to be of precise use to my analysis
- how one can write an environment friendly program to obtain the meta-models and their historical past (supposing the opposite two points are resolved).
Perhaps I didn’t see an apparent answer to my downside, or there may be a better approach to implement my “GitHub-idea”, however I’m presently caught and any assist could be considerable. I ought to specify that within the present state of affairs I would not have entry to quite a lot of assets, besides Web.
