Use Open Source FlashDevelop IDE with Google Maps API for Flash

by James Richards September 30, 2009

This thread on the Google Maps API for Flash Group Forum caught my attention yesterday:

The author outlines the steps required to get FlashDevelop up and running with the Google Maps API for Flash. FlashDevelop is a free and open source IDE with code completion for ActionScript, MXML, XML, and HTML.


It provides a compelling alternative to FlexBuilder and is worth a look. Please donate to the project if you use it!

I followed the steps outlined in the thread and everything worked as described. Here are a few extra details that might be useful:

Hope this helps!
