ADXStudio is here!!

What is it?

ADXStudio is an IDE for people who want to create Askia Design Control (and later Askia Design Page) easier and faster. This application can support AskiaScript, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, … and more.

ADXStudio was built with Electron, this application is based on NodeJS. Furthermore, we have included CodeMirror (already used in Design and Vista) to get a complete text editor with syntax highlighting and autocompletion.

Installation

To install ADXStudio, follow the procedure available here.

ADXStudio is available on Github and everyone who wants to contribute can download the source code and send us a pull request.

    Very much impressed with ADXStudio… Preview on side is kind of Icing on the cake. 🙂
