Revolutionary actionscript editor



I’ve already twitted/faced about this editor a while ago, but still, now that i’ve contacted Ivan Dembicki, the CEO and developer of Realaxy LTD (you might know Iv by his bezier project) and Evgeniy Potapenko (CEO), i’ve sniffed out some new details about their revolutionary actionscript editor called Realaxy ActionScript Editor.

So, for those of you that don’t know what’s this all about – it’s all about the new revolutionary actionscript editor called the Realaxy ActionScript Editor developed by the Realaxy team.

UPDATED (clickable)

So, what is so revolutionary about it?
Well, here are its advantages at first sight:

  • written on JetBrains MPS
  • smart autocomplite
  • autocomplete E4X
  • metadata autocomplete
  • extended smart E4X
  • rapid development of methods, fields, and other language constructs only by pressing Enter
  • method parameters suggestion in code
  • getters/setters generation
  • toString generation
  • event handlers generation
  • override/implements methods
  • lots of Refactorings features
  • powerful bug tracing (FlexUnit, Debugger and Profiler in dev)
  • Language extensions (Realaxy Action Script Editor is the only ActionScript editor allowing you to create and use language extensions. Even today Enums, Collection Language and Generics language extensions are available for you. Next in turn are Flow Language, plug-in architecture support, pattern support and caching language. But even that is not all. You can create language extensions and share them with other editor users.)

…and MORE

Here’s the “Smart auto complete demo” that i just love say hi to adobe :)

See other Realaxy editor demos here.

Release date: Realaxy Action Script Editor 1.0 is planned to the end of august 2010.

That’s it for now, guys. All that i can tell for now.
I’ll keep you in touch.

ps: can’t wait to get my hands on the private demo


I’ve just sneaked out some new vital & hillarious Realaxy features.
You will be able to code java and objective C applications on your favourite ActionScript 3.0. Unbelievable, isn’t it? :)

The whole thing is that there’s a retranslation mechanism which will automatically generate a java/objective c code for ya, as i’ve understood. And what that means is that you WILL be able to dev apps for the Apple AppStore.
Say “hi” to Steveeee

    I’m not really convinced based on the Vimeo demo so far. I remain skeptical until I play with it.
    By the way, “Revolutional” is grammatically incorrect. It is “Revolutionary AS editor”, but I’m not sure I agree with that quite yet. ;)

    Yeap, thx 4 the correction. Well, i always make mistakes when in rush, so…
    And what is the nature of your doubts, hm?
    Go see the demos, so that your doubts dispel :)

    ps: but still, i can understand your doubts as i’m also a very sceptical person. Well, guess we’ll just have to w8 4 the release/open beta.

    Sounds promising. I’m curious about the license. Is it truly cross-platform? Eclipse based?

    Have you seen MiniBuilder?

    Not that smart but lightweight, clean, and GPL

    Yeap, i’ve seen it, but it’s an AIR-based sort of ide. AIR = low performance.
    I wouldn’t compare realaxy with MiniBuilder. It’s like saying “beer is better than cats O.o” or smth like that.
    These r not comparable.

    No MXML support though right?

    Any profiler?

    MXML (3, 4) supported.
    Yes, it has a profiler.

    Nice, 99$ look worth it

    Just wondering if there’s a way to sign up for the beta?

    Yeah, it looks really promising. But, as far as i know, guys from Realaxy don’t intend to make an open beta testing for now.
    BUT you can acquire for the private demo. To do so contact Ivan Dembicki
