Is it possible to develope HTML+JavaScript Adobe AIR apps in IDEA?

Hey guys,

I just have a quick question. Is it possible to develope HTML+JS Adobe AIR apps in intellij idea? If possible, is there any wizard or something for it?

If I create a project from scratch, there is no option for Adobe AIR application or module. I also can't add a new Adobe AIR SDK to an existing Web project.

Could you guys please help me?

Thank you,
Peti

I'm no expert in Air applications. But I've done some Flex SWF and SWC development though. So I can give you a general answer. Then a JetBrains developer can come along and add anything I've missed.

Yes it is.

Not per say. IDEA generally does not have "highly specific" wizards. There are a couple. But for the most part, you need to configure a project semi-manually. The new project has plenty of guidance in it. So while there is not a "Create me an HTML+JavaScript AIR application" wizard, you can easily create the equivalent via the new project wizard.

To prevent an over proliferation of module types, IDEA combines common ones. The "Flash Module" module option is used for creating SWFs, SWCs, or Air applications. After selecting it, the next step asks you if you want to create an Application (i.e. Air), Library (i.e. SWC) or a Runtime-loaded module (i.e. a SWF). It is on this step that you set your SDK.

The blog posting http://blogs.jetbrains.com/idea/2012/02/new-flex-project-setup has some information to guide you. Note that the blog refers to version 11.1 which was released yesterday. So you will want to make sure you are up to date (Help > About and/or Help > Check for Update).

For more information, you can reference the following Help topics either directly in IDEA (ultimate edition) or on the web:

I'm afraid the answer is No. So far we were designing project setup only for SWF based AIR applicaions. Please vote/comment related request: http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-76365. The feature will be implemented if we'll recognize that dozens of users need it. At the moment you are the second person who asked for.
