NextGen ActionScript extension for Visual Studio Code
This README file is intended for contributors to the extension. If you simply want to install the latest stable version of the extension, please visit the Visual Studio Marketplace. For help using the extension, visit the wiki for detailed instructions.
This project is divided into several modules.
language-server provides ActionScript and MXML code intelligence for Visual Studio Code or another editor that supports the Language Server Protocol. It integrates with the compiler from Apache FlexJS and is written in Java.
check-java-version creates an executable JAR file that will verify that the current version of Java meets the minimum requirements for the language server.
check-flexjs-version creates an executable JAR file that will verify that the current version of Apache FlexJS meets the minimum requirements for the language server.
vscode-extension initializes the Java language-server process from inside Visual Studio Code and handles a few features that the Language Server Protocol does not support.
distribution packages everything together to create the final extension that is compatible with Visual Studio Code.
Requires Apache Maven. Run the following command in the root directory to build the extension:
mvn clean package
The extension will be generated in
distribution/target/vscode-nextgenas/vscode-nextgenas. This directory may be run inside Visual Studio Code's extension host. Additionally, a
vsix file will be generated that may be installed in Visual Studio Code.
