Apache Flex® and Adobe® AIR® with IntelliJ IDEA

I have recorded a free series of 10 videos around Apache Flex and Adobe AIR with IntelliJ IDEA. I believe that moving forward, IntelliJ IDEA is the best IDE for learning and using Apache Flex. Adobe Flash Builder used to fill this role, but Adobe has discontinued it’s free licensing to students for some time now… and will most likely not be updating that tool in the perceivable future. As a bonus – IntelliJ IDEA is an absolute beast that can handle just about anything ;)

You can watch the playlist over on YouTube, or as embedded below:

I’m also working on a similar series focused on using Starling, Feathers, and Adobe® AIR® with IntelliJ IDEA.

  1. Some of use have been working on FlexJS integration with IntelliJ. I actually have it working with code completion, MXML and external build tools for compiling with FalconJX.


  2. And I’m working at the moment on the FlexJS compiler integration, it will avoid the use of the IntelliJ “External tools” and you will give you the same nice compilation experience than standard Flex projects, should be ready in 1 week or so, stay tuned !!

  3. Once booked, you are then just waiting for the day of your lesson. It was so embarrasing when someone looked
    at your license and thought you were an easy mark if your licence stated you were divorced rather than single.
    This feature is found in models such as Lexus,
    Toyota, Ford, Volkswagen,.

  4. the only thing bugging me with using flex in intelliJ is the greenish overlay for everything enclosed in CDATA tags.

    Is there a way to disable this?
