TextMate and Flex 2

I’ve been having a bit of a play with Adobe’s Flex 2 command line compiler. After doing a quick search around the net I found a couple of hints for using it with TextMate. Unfortunately none of them did quite what I wanted, so I built my own. Hopefully it will be useful for others :)

TextMate bundle for Flex 2 coding

It adds a new language type for mxml files, a few snippets with mx as the tab trigger and a build command bound to Command-B.  By default it looks for your Flex install in the following places

  1. ~/Flex
  2. ~/flex_sdk_2
  3. /Developer/SDKs/Flex
  4. /Developer/SDKs/flex_sdk_2
  5. /Developer/Applications/Flex
  6. /Developer/Applications/flex_sdk_2
  7. /Applications/Flex
  8. /Applications/flex_sdk_2

Any errors or warnings are displayed in the output window and a click will take you to where the problem is.

Once your Flex app is building successfully it will be opened in Safari, or if you have a script called deploy in the same folder as your mxml file it will be executed instead.

Enjoy :)
