Adobe ExtendScript

Hello,

can I use WebStorm as IDE for Adobe ExtendScript (scripting Adobe applications - InDesign, Photoshop…).

„Use as IDE“ i think basically:

1) write and run scripts and use autocomplete feature

2) debuging

 

At least 1st point is necessary for me and second is optional.

 

Thank you.

Re: Adobe ExtendScript

Hello!

 

 

WebStorm doesn't provide any special support for Adobe ExtenScript. But, as this is just a JavaScript + some standard libraries + some extensions (like preprocessor directives), it should be possible to use WebStorm for editing it

For preprocessor directives handling please see this thread: http://devnet.jetbrains.com/message/5476040

Re: Adobe ExtendScript

of course, you have to register .jsx files as javascript in Settings/File Types

Re: Adobe ExtendScript

If you have .js files with InDesign objects defined, you can configure them as custom libraries in Settings/JavaScript/Libraries

Re: Adobe ExtendScript

Well, then I can only suggest converting XML to javascript objects - there are plenty of tools i

n the web that are capable of doing this...
