- The API Docs – Can’t do much without these
- Adobe’s Getting Start Doc – Adobe does a great job of introducing Flex and making clear what it is and isn’t.
- Flex Compiler Shell – the very cool utility that turns the rather crude command line compiler into a rally useful tool. This now comes with Flex, you don’t need to download it separately.
- Bootstrapping an ActionScript Only App – Flex encourages you to program in both XML and ActionScript. I’d rather program in ActionScript only, which isn’t really a problem. Accept, getting an app to start with just ActionScript isn’t obvious. This link provides a nice recipe where you use a single .mxml file, and the rest of your code base is in ActionScript.
- emascript-mode.el – This is a nice Emacs mode for editing ActionScript. Combine this with auto-insert mode, and you’re good to go.
- Fast Flex compilation for Emacs – this mode is a life saver. It wraps up fcsh, and allows you to recompile your project files in just a second or two. It also updates Emacs so it jumps to the write line in the file when a compilation error occurs.
- Emacs and Flex in the wild – An actual programmer talks about using Emacs and Flex together
- Migrating from ActionScript 2 to ActionScript 3 – This is a very useful document that will bring you up to speed on the latest and greatest ActionScript.
If you are using the Unix/Linux, why not begin at once.
