Set of cool generic tools in modeling domain models based on domain-driven design and event storming

DISCLAIMER: Not production ready, very volatile API! But with locked versions one can already develop full-blown domain models. #

Proposal for Collaboration on EDNetCore: A Meta Framework for Rapid Definition of Domain Models #

Introduction: #

This document presents a proposal for collaboration on an open-source project to develop a meta framework for rapid definition of domain models called EDNetCore. This framework is built on top of the Domain-Driven Design (DDD) and EventStorming methodologies and enables the encapsulation of reusable parts of semantic implementation for generic repositories and UI default renderings.

Motivation: #

The software development industry is experiencing a shift towards highly abstract and conceptual thinking in architectural terms, as evidenced by the disruptive advance of no-code platforms and solutions. This trend demands a focus on the concepts of solutions, their contextual role, and relationships, rather than the implementation details such as UI or persistence concerns. This shift places pressure on the industry to compete in creativity at a higher level, where the minority of highly specialized developers will act as maintainers of sub-stacks with similar knowledge of systems and subsystems as the modern average developer.

The pressure of the analog-to-digital transition is immense and will utilize every novel niche with disrupting potential and fulfill it. The shortage of endemic highly skilled developers is continuous and omnipresent, and this project aims to democratize the no-code approach by empowering developers to focus on what matters, the Domain Model.

Framework Description: #

EDNetDSL #

is used to describe any domain model. EDNetCMS interprets it on various platforms using appropriate default model interpreters, by only manipulating a YAML file of user stories high-level concepts and their basic relationships, as not more complex as a basic ER diagram, we can generate an entire well-structured, evolveable MVP of domain model in discussion and deploy it on the platform of our choosing.

concepts:
  - name: User
    entry: true
    attributes:
      - sequence: 1
        name: username

      - sequence: 2
        name: password
        sensitive: true

      - sequence: 3
        name: email

      - sequence: 4
        name: name

  - name: Address
    attributes:
      - sequence: 1
        name: zip

      - sequence: 2
        name: city

      - sequence: 3
        name: street

      - sequence: 4
        name: number

  - name: Country
    attributes:
      - sequence: 1
        name: name

      - sequence: 2
        name: iso

relations:
  - from: Address
    fromToName: country
    to: Country
    toFromName: addresses
    id:
      from: false
      to: false
    fromToCardinality:
      min: 1
      max: 1
    toFromCardinality:
      min: 0
      max: N
    category: relationship
    internal: false

  - from: User
    fromToName: company
    to: Company
    toFromName: employees
    id:
      from: true
      to: false
    fromToCardinality:

EDNetCore #

is an instance implementation of EDNetDSL meta framework for rapid definition of domain models and is an abstraction on top of DDD and EventStorming, implementing their semantic and lingo. It enables the encapsulation of reusable parts of implementation for generic repositories and UI default renderings. In combination with other open-source initiatives, EDNetCore can generate almost everything infrastructural and have default Flutter material interpreter app for multi-platform deployment or default React material interpreter app optimized for web deployment of EDNetCore domain models.

import 'package:ednet_core/ednet_core.dart';

class Vote extends Entity<Vote> {}

class Votes extends Entities<Vote> {}

class Initiative extends Entity<Initiative> {}

class Citizen extends Entity<Citizen> {}

class Proposal extends Entity<Proposal> {}

class Address extends ValueObject<Address> {}
// ...

/// Commands
class VoteForProposalCommand extends IEntitiesCommand {}

class VoteAgainstProposalCommand extends IEntitiesCommand {}

class CommentProposalCommand extends IEntitiesCommand {}
// ... 

/// Side effects as Command reactions  - Events
class ProposalCommentedReaction implements ICommandReaction {}

// ...

Project Ambition: #

The project's ambition is not small, and there is a job to be done across all levels of seniority. There are amounts of legacy Dart 1 code waiting to be transformed into modern mixins and extensions. Large scale architectural concerns around performant peer-to-peer capabilities with universal platform as a constraint must be addressed. Furthermore, the definition, implementation, and concrete specialization of the rest of DDD and EventStorming artifacts, such as policies and events, aggregate roots, systems, etc., are yet to be integrated.

ECMA Script transpilation and hooking publishing to npmjs for web development

Backend use case specifics and examples of usage EDNetCore as domain model framework for custom backend with dart or nodejs and integration with existing ecosystem of popular technologies missing domain model opinion as Remix and similar.

One domain model framework integrating backend and frontend implementation at the end generating optionally different levels of the architecture for the integration.

Extensive documentation for existing API and architecture of EDNetCore in form of C4.

The implementation of code generation for our DSL will empower higher stakeholders like Product managers to take more direct responsibility for the implementation on the software design level fully. They will understand how we derived our language and serve as active participants in the process.

Working with highly structured graphs like are metamodels of domain models have bound us to utilize resources like DBPedia for generic interpretation or at least building of library of highly contextualized specializations of available public semantic models. Or, in plain language - we can and shall use public knowledge dbs and their ontologies to model all that there is, or to spark a life in our structured knowledge so that we persist our custom interactions of our custom contexts.

EaaS, Everything as a service, we have to pay special attention to deployment capabilities and support all major cloud providers in unified way

Conclusion: #

The EDNetCore meta framework for rapid definition of domain models, built on top of DDD and EventStorming, aims to democratize the no-code approach to software development by empowering developers to focus on what matters, the Domain Model. This open-source initiative offers the potential to generate almost everything infrastructural, and with the implementation of code generation for our DSL, we will enable higher stakeholders to take more direct responsibility for the implementation of software design.
