Subject Re: Flex SDK code conventions
Date Thu, 05 Jan 2012 09:20:53 GMT
I've worked on a project where IntelliJ and Flashbuilder with FlexFormatter
was used, it took a bit of tweaking
but both IntelliJ's formatter and FlexFormatter can be configured to
process files equally.
So config files for both IDE's can be created and distributed. Other IDE's
we'll need to look into of course.
