I had been searching for a good lightweight text editor to develop Actionscript 3 on Linux, but there wasn't much out there. Eventually, I decided to make a custom options file for the SciTE text editor to support Actionscript 3 and the Flex SDK. This is the result, if anyone out there is looking for something similar.
With a few modifications, these options should work on Windows as well. I do not do my development on Windows, but if there is a demand, I will make these options compatible.
- Lightweight SciTE text editor
- Actionscript 3 syntax highlighting
- Keyword completion
- Automatic indentation
- Publish, Debug, and Test movies with the Flex SDK and Ant
- It's all free
See the included readme.txt for install instructions.
