DSLs allow web developers to build intuitive solutions tailored to a limited set of problems. Popular examples include HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), and SQL (Structured Query Language). The most basic DSLs, often used for a single application, are informally called "mini-languages."
For example, if a website allows you to create graphic designs, using a GLP is challenging and time-consuming, as it requires writing design-related functions in code.
However, a DSL can let you create specific commands, like createCircle or createSquare, to write succinct code directly aligned with the site's purpose.
