Two things. One (just a suggestion) You might consider copyrighting it under the GNU GPL licence(just a thought...) And a question. Would it be allright with you if I could get the source code? It would really interest me. But if not I am fine without.

There are two simple reasons why I haven't released the source code (yet).

First, ASL Editor is - apart of my hobby - also a semester project for my programming lessons. If my teacher found the entire source code available on the internet, he might find it hard to believe that I am the author of this program. Therefore I cannot release the source code until September.

The second reason is because the whole code is kind of half-finished and messy... I'm working on several new features now and I'm also going to rewrite some old ones from scratch. If anybody - including my teacher - tried to read the code now, he would probably hate me (I hate myself too sometimes...).

So, to answer your question, I am planning to release the entire source code, although not before September/October 2009.

Ahhh That's fine. I understand now. Well I'll bet you'll get a really good grade! I am not sure if this is on your list of things to add but it would be really cool if you could add a play in Anim8or button. So that you could click a button and it would automaticly save and run Anim8or. It shouldn't be to hard.

I found a bug I think. If you Try to redraw the text when ther is no text is says Unhandled exception. I am not sure if it does that for you but thought I'd let you know.(in case you want to know all the bugs)

Thank you for your feedback Jdez!

That text-redraw error is definitely a bug, I added it to the list. Bug reports, as well as feature suggestions are always welcome. Thanks once more!

I have been thinking of ways to make it even better(just to annoy you) One idea I came up with would be to add a Code Browser so that you could look through all the classes in a seperate window(Kinda a built in ASL Database). Just another of my many suggestions...

Good idea! To be honest, I've been thinking about a feature like that... I'll add it to the list!

A new version is out!

ASL Editor has done a huge step forward. There are several new features and I rewrote half of the original code from scratch, that's why it took so long...

The most important changes are:
  • Improved performance - no more jerky scrolling, no more text-redraw delays...
  • Improved the auto-complete function
  • New Syntax Checker function (still far from perfect, but quite useful!)
  • A help file included
  • Several bugs fixed

Czech, French and Spanish translations are included (thanks a lot to Paulo and dajean)

Download link

Any feature requests, questions and bug reports are welcome!


One of the most useful features (from my point of view) is the ability to add your own description to user-declared variables. This description will be displayed in the yellow infobox which is displayed when you move your mouse over a variable name or when auto-completing a variable name. It really helps when you are working on a long script... See the help file for a detailed information about this feature.

The following image shows how the custom description of variables and the syntax checker work:

It's been a while since I released the last version of ASL Editor... And now it's the time for the ultimate upgrade!

This new version is more stable, faster and easier to use than any of the previous versions. And more importantly, it contains a bunch of new great features!

Most important changes:
  • A complete, structured, well-organised ASL reference is included directly in ASL Editor! See details below
  • A simple graphic editor to create/edit plugin buttons
  • Automatic recognition of matching brackets
  • Major performance improvement of the text-highlighting function
  • Improved the Undo/Redo functions, Auto-Competing and Syntax Checker
  • Many bugs fixed

Download link

Feature requests, bug reports and questions are still welcome!



The most important new feature in this version is the ASL Explorer. I spent several weeks researching, testing and documenting every single element of the ASL language and here is the result: the most detailed ASL documentation ever written. Every single directive, constant, function, type and type member is described in detail, including code examples, useful tips and more.

There's no need to say more. Check out the following screenshot, download ASL Editor and try it yourself! Creating ASL plugins has never been easier! (do you still remember the times when you used to use Notepad?)

Yeah I remember the times I used notepad. Thanks for the awesome update! I'll keep this in my back pocket for when I feel like I'm in the scripting mood :)

I'm extra happy that you put the reference material in the program itself!

Thanks :)

Maybe I should have waited with this release a little bit longer, because I just found one bug 5 minutes after I posted the message ;D I'll fix it and post a new version asap...

EDIT: it's done, I uploaded new version... If you downloaded ASL Editor within the last 30 minutes, please download it again... I apologize for that.
