Flex Formatter

Flex Builder 3, an eclipse~ IDE for flex and actionscript based project development lacks few primary code indentation and refactoring functionalities by itself.

Searching for some other technical requirement drove me to Flex Formatter, a third party project on source! Cheers, its BSD license! 🙂

This tool is really small but very essential and useful plugin

Many times it happens that code is written in hurry to achieve some short term goal. Either some efforts need to invest to refactor and indent the code, or else go for Flex Formatter.

Built in capability to generate ASDoc is also impressive! However, I suppose, all these features, of flex formatter have been covered with Flash Builder 4.

Flexible Eclipse

Flex SDK is Free & Open Source but Flex Builder is neither free nor open source.

I googled if there is any way to use Flex SDK with Eclipse (because Flex Builder is built on Eclipse too) for development purpose.I found 2 useful results; Of course I haven’t tried yet.
