Released an update to my “Flash Developer Kit” today.
My devkit basically contains eclipse with the wonderful FDT Professional, some Java installs, Perl, Flex compiler files.
Because I have 8 developers to handle I’ve made some rules on what software to use, code rules, architecture and so on. After a lot of hard work it finally pays of. We can now easily get into a projects SVN (using tortoise) and instantly know where to start looking for code when something needs to be done.
I have as well setup a big SVN library with our whole framework, so when starting a new project an ANT script is building up the architecture with files and everything we need to get started fast.
As a general working architecture for the code we are following Adobes Cairngorm (some good docs). Was created for Flex applications, but with some refactorying I got it to work very nice with AS3 projects and is now porting the major functionality to AS2. This makes us be able to work with the same architecture in all projects and does not have to care if it’s Flash 6 or 9 projects.
