The goal of this project is to reduce the treshold to 'get started' writing and debugging ExtendScript scripts.
The approach I've taken is to provide you with a ready-to-run script with all its source code.
In addition, there is a lot of developer infrastructure code (helpers scripts) which help with tasks like installing, debugging, reading log files...
Most of the helper scripts are human-readable command line scripts (.command on Mac, .bat on Windows).
These helpers are all written in such a way that they are easy to inspect and analyze. They also serve as a way to explain and document the development processes.
I know from experience how disheartening it is to find some useful sample code, and then get mired into all kinds of issues trying to install various tools that are needed in order to get a simple bit of sample code to run.
To avoid that, I've also tried my best to keep external dependencies to the absolute minimum.
This package should allow you to get going with the following minimal dependencies:
- Adobe Creative Cloud CC 2014 or higher
- Mac OS X 10.9 or Windows 7.x or higher
- VSCode with the Adobe ExtendScript Debugger plug-in installed
