What is xJSFL?

xJSFL is an open source JSFL framework for creating tools for the Adobe Flash authoring environment

xJSFL combines the expressive nature and extensibility of a JavaScript framework like jQuery with the structure and file management features of PHP frameworks such as Kohana, to make working with JSFL easy. Not only that but it comes with the brilliant open source IDE Komodo Edit supporting full JSFL auto-completion, templates, macros, publishing shortcuts and more.

Why use xJSFL?

Developers can radically speed up their everyday JSFL development, gaining access to an eco-system of software, production-tested libraries, classes, techniques and best-practices to build more advanced, more powerful tools in a fraction of the usual time.

Designers can use the front-end features of xJSFL, such as the Snippets Panel, to more easily manage and run the commands they use daily, and gain access to a library of more powerful, interface-driven, xJSFL scripts.
