Hi, I'm Josh Tynjala, and I'm working on the ActionScript & MXML language extension for Visual Studio Code. You may know me as the creator of Feathers UI, an open source user interface component library for Starling Framework and Adobe AIR.

ActionScript & MXML for Visual Studio Code

Adobe no longer updates Flash Builder, and the latest version isn't particularly stable anymore. While ActionScript and MXML support continues to be maintained in IntelliJ IDEA, there hasn't been a lot of new development lately. Newer SDKs, like the Feathers SDK and Apache Royale, require special workarounds and extra configuration to work. We deserve better.

That's why I started working on an ActionScript & MXML language extension for Microsoft's popular (and open source!) Visual Studio Code editor. I believe that it's now up to the community to ensure that we continue to have a modern development environment for ActionScript that supports all of the SDKs and features that we use today to build our projects.



When I work on any ActionScript project, I've made it a point to always use Visual Studio Code. The needs of real-world projects should be driving the development of the AS3 & MXML extension. Additionally, multiple developers contributing to Apache Royale use the extension to work on the Royale framework and components. Here's what Gabe Harbs had to say about the extension:



As a patron, your contribution will support continued development of this VSCode extension, and I will share exclusive, early previews of new features as they're still in development.

Thanks for your support!
