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 vscode-as3mxml wiki for detailed instructions.
This project is divided into several modules.
language-server provides ActionScript and MXML code intelligence for Visual Studio Code and other editors (like Moonshine IDE) that support the Language Server Protocol. Code intelligence is powered by the ActionScript compiler from Apache Royale, but it supports a variety of ActionScript SDKs. This module is written in Java.
asconfigc creates an executable JAR file that can parse the asconfig.json file format and execute the compiler with the specified options. This module 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-royale-version creates an executable JAR file that will verify that the current version of the Apache Royale compiler meets the minimum requirements for the language server.
vscode-extension implements various features that are specific to Visual Studio Code, and initializes the language server Java process. This module is written in TypeScript.
distribution packages everything together to create the final extension that is compatible with Visual Studio Code.
mvn clean package
The extension will be generated in distribution/target/vscode-as3mxml/vscode-as3mxml. This directory may be run inside Visual Studio Code's extension host. Additionally, a .vsix file will be generated that may be manually installed in Visual Studio Code.
Tests are run in the Visual Studio Code extension host.
Results will appear in the Output view.
Note: If the extension cannot find Apache Royale on your system automatically, you may need to configure the
as3mxml.sdk.editor setting in _vscode-extension/src/test/applicationworkspace/.vscode/settings.json.
The ActionScript & MXML extension for Visual Studio Code is developed by Josh Tynjala with the support of community members like you.
