ma Yeah pretty much what I was thinking.
I have had to make some decisions lately. One thing that is still on my head, years ago I wrote/helped develop an IDEA plugin for Randori framework it used the newer Falcon AS3 compiler(2012 transpile to JS). Anyway, the only thing that I am hesitant with AS3 is the IDE and I use IDEA.
My thought is and also from above, I have looked at the code for the plugin and it's open source. I know a lot of people have said they use it as well, and I think one thing the community would be greater for is knowing that plugin could get updated as things change with the compiler.
So I am like at a cross roads here, I see my ability to use the AIR runtime still, because I just like the language doing what I do (and because of the IDE, I use IntelliJ for C++, C#, Java Android etc). I like the ease of publishing, use Haxe(FeathersUI) as well, but that is a completely different experience.
This is just brainstorming, I will know exactly where I am headed by the end of April. I will note here if I try and mess with the IDEA AS3 plugin or write some tutorials/docs.
