Subject Re: [RT] Design View in FlashBuilder
Date Sun, 19 Feb 2012 15:09:32 GMT
What I've been thinking if it isn't obvious is creating an open source
project(s). There's would be two parts to this.

1. An abstract eclipse like integrated environment (project)
2. A designer / developer workflow (project)

The first would be built to support the second.

The second would be creating a designer / developer environment

Why build an eclipse like environment first? I think it needs a solid
foundation and flexibility. If a view or editor (design view) doesn't solve
a problem it should be able to be swapped out with one that does. If new
ideas or requirements come along it needs to be able to adapt easily to
support those.
