FlexBuilder (Eclipse) Plugin for Cairngorm Code Generation (and more)

As Flex continues to be adopted by more and more RIA developers, it’s great to see efforts that support developing with the Cairngorm framework (Steven W. has a roundup). For many developers, it makes for an easier transition toward structured MVC architecture and a ‘pattern mindset’ in general. This new eclipse plugin is another one to add to the list.

For a few months now, Luis Lejter has been working on a cool plugin for Eclipse (Flex Builder), and finally I can spread the good word! It’s more than a Cairngorm wizard, and has nice features like ASDoc documentation generators, end-to-end class generators for REST / WSDL / Remoting, and an e4x editor expression builder, to name a few.

Check out the full feature list on his new blog, and the screenshot gallery (running on OSX).

Great stuff, Luis!

    Looks really great! You have done a wonderful job if the screenshots are any indication. When and how will the plugin be available for sale or download?

    Again, super job!

  2. This would be great ! At the mo. I’m just using CFEclipse’s Snippits for some of this, but it’s still a lot of repetitive manual work.

    It’s important that I clarify: Luis is actually not affiliated with Adobe, and has been building the plugin on his own. As for his release plans, I’d say ask him via his blog, and hope for the best! 🙂
