Latest commit 8bee1f7 Oct 16, 2018


Moonshine IDE is a free IDE built with Adobe AIR. You can create ActionScript 3, Apache Flex®, Apache Royale® and Feathers projects from Moonshine-IDE. It also provides cloud support.


We want to provide a free IDE to our community for ActionScript projects. An IDE which is cross platform and provides Apache Flex®, Apache Royale®, Feathers and cloud support.



We build Moonshine IDE with Apache Flex® SDK 4.16.1, using Adobe AIR and Flash Player 28.0.
