Pimp my Flex Builder

I’ve gotten very used to Eclipse over the past year or so. One feature i absolutely love is the fact that i can write comments prefixed with TODO or FIXME and a handy task window will keep track of those comments. Which in the end tells me exactly what needs to be done without having to seek out that line of code or even having to remember which file it was.
Another feature i was missing, is of course SVN. Nothings safer than having a repository for all your stuff ;)

So obviously i was a little upset seeing that Flex Builder 3 doesn’t feature either a Task Management or even a modern Versioning System. But don’t fret!

Since Flex Builder 3 is Eclipse based you can easily install subclipse to get svn running. To find out how to install subclipse to your builder just follow this generic installation guide over at the subclipse website.

For the Tasks i tried a couple things before i started scavenging the net. But then i found the TODO/FIXME extension, a task plugin done by Dirk Eismann for Flex Builder 2 that still works even with Flex Builder 3.

And there you go. Two helpful features added to your beloved Flex Builder. Hope this helps someone out there.
