Agreed! It might be worth it for you to check out our VSCode plugin for ExtendScript developers:
> is it safe to assume that there will be no official Language Server extension included in this plugin?
Yes, a language server extension is currently out of scope for the plugin.
> If I know there won’t be conflicting projects on a Language Server, I’d be willing to attempt it myself for .jsx.
Hi Hauke! It’s true that, while there’s a strong history there, the state of technical resources for scripting isn’t where we’d like it to be in the CC apps. In the last couple of years, there’s been a renewed commitment to our developer platform that’s just starting to come to fruition in some parts of Creative Cloud.
Thanks Peter! This is one where I don’t have a good answer for you, but it’s clear why this is useful. We’re seeing if we can get a prerelease going for the plugin. If so, I’d love for you to join, and we can open up the topic for discussion there.
Thanks Ariel! I’m not sure why I didn’t list _stack trace_ as a supported feature, because I went out of my way to make sure to include a screenshot showing the call stack. 😅 I’ve updated the list to explicitly include stack trace.
As for choice of editor to support, we went with what we thought would address the widest…
Thanks for sharing those projects Gregor! We’ll have a look.
