The aggregated synthesis of original web content into mashups has arisen as a response to the growing need to make information more relevant to individuals on the Internet. As a result, mashups are now commonplace and there is an increased need to make mashups easier to develop and consume. There have been a number of simple graphical tools which have been developed in response to this need. One of the most common of these, Yahoo! Pipes, integrates a graphical flowchart (pipe) to build a mashup. Despite this, some developers find that they are more familiar with code than GUI tools, and to satisfy this need, this paper presented a simple Domain Specific Language (DSL) for the production of complex mashups.
