This wiki has moved to https://github.com/ExtendScript/wiki/wiki.

This wiki is my personal documentation on Adobe Extendscript. A big part of it was created during a workshop @ FH-Potsdam ;-⟩ project week 2012/13 "Typography & Automation".

I will from time to time update on some topics, so stay tuned. You are also welcome to contribute. There are a lot of typos in there. Feel free to fix them. If you have a topic to add. Do it. If you have questions. Ask me.

###About the workshop Typography and Automation
The goal was to learn the basics of JavaScript for Adobe applications to apply this in automated layouts and generative art. Bring raw text into shape by rules.

The project begun with an introduction to JavaScript and how it works with InDesign, then project and idea development to follow in individual and group meetings. At the end there was a short group presentations.
In these 2 weeks some impressive works where created by the students. Some of them already had programming experience some of them did not. I was pleased to see that with the right will and somebody you can ask it is possible for designers to get a quick start into scripting.
