Really excited about the improvements that FDT team is doing around Haxe and Ant. Recently I started working on a set of project templates for FDT 5.5 so that Haxe users can have a good work flow within FDT.
The latest update of FDT adds the ability to make your Ant task a “Build Config”. This way you can use your normal build / debug config keyboard shortcuts. This is a huge time saver if you are using the NME Ant builds. See the following video below.
Second part on the basics of using the parsley MVC frame work for actionscript 3 and flex projects. In this lesson we learn how to create and action, get some data and update the view.
Parsley is an MVC framework for Actionscript 3 and Flex projects. It uses dependency injection very much like Robotlegs. In this first video I show you how to get things set up.
Eclipse syntax color themes for FDT
If you haven’t looked for this lately you are going to be really happy to see this eclipse plugin. For at least a couple of years I was hoping someone would build a plugin for managing themes in eclipse. We all tend to not like the default no matter what language you program in. The process be for was going into the Appearance tab in Eclipse and changing the color settings to reflect the needs you have, export preferences and then import every time you switch work spaces.
Well check out eclipsecolorthemes.org. This plugin adds a section under the Appearance menu in Preferences. You can brows the site and search for popular themes. My fav in TextMate has always been Twilight so I did a search and found one that was perfect, downloaded the theme and imported it with no issue.
