Subject Re: MXML and ActionScript in Visual Studio Code

That would be perfect. Automatically adding imports is something I’m really missing in VS

“Organize imports” is another item that would be really nice to have.

“Command 1”  is something else I use in Flash Builder regularly. Generating getters and
setters from variables is a great time saver. (Other quick fixes too)

I’m really pumped up about your extension. Good tooling for FlexJS is really important IMO,
and tooling built around a modern editor with features like multi-selection, etc. is great.

What would be involved in having templates for different project types? Is that something
that’s do-able in VS Code?
