New Xcode Actionscript Language Definition File

The new actionscript language definition files that I posted about earlier are available. You can get the Flash 7 or the Flash 8 version of the definition files. You can download the BASH script I wrote which generates the files here. To install simply drop the two files included in the download into

/Library/Application Support/Apple/Developer Tools/Specifications

. Kudos to Sam Robbins for creating the original actionscript language definition file.

The best thing about the new language definition files is placeholders for actionscript functions & methods like in Objective-C. Here’s a screenshot of the code-sense with placeholders in action:

Let me know if you have any suggestions for improvements!

Enjoy!
