The paper discusses how to build DSML tool building platform in WEB. Previously this was not possible due to the limitations of the browsers to render graphical diagrams but the technologies have evolved and currently the limitations are eliminated. Basically, the platform consists of three components – Presentation, engine, Interpreter and the Configurator. The paper gives an explanation what are the tasks for each of the component and how they interact with each other. To demonstrate a tool building process, a building of a simple flowchart editor is presented.
