LIBPF® Model Wizard

Interactively generate the C++ code required for a LIBPF® process model


The LIBPF® Model Wizard is a free and open-source, browser-based tool that can be used online or run locally.

The LIBPF® Model Wizard allows the model developer to generate interactively the C++ code required for a process model:

  • the Interface (.h file)

  • the Implementation (.cc file)

  • the Driver (.cc file).

The generated C++ code will not work out of the box: a few bits are missing, mainly due to the limitation of the JSON format that does not support multi-line strings and escaping (see xml's CDATA). Consider it a starting point !

For more information on LIBPF® (the LIBrary for Process Flowsheeting), check the homepage.

For the source code to the LIBPF® Model Wizard itself, check the gitlab repo.
