Model Driven Development (MDD) requires model-to-model and/or model-to-text transformations to produce application code from high level descriptions. Debugging and evaluating such transformations is in itself a complex task; complexity which can be mitigated through the usage of advanced developer tools. We demonstrate ALMOsT-Trace, a plug-in for ALMOsT.js, which allows developers to debug and analyze their model transformations from within their applications. In the demo, attendees will be able to experiment with ALMOsT-Trace by evaluating it in, an online tool for the rapid prototyping of web and mobile applications, and by means of examples that can be customized by the attendees themself.
