The ExtendScript Toolkit¶
The Extendscript Toolkit has been deprecated in favour of The VS Code Debugger!
This information is preserved here for legacy reference, but the Extendscript Toolkit is no longer being actively maintained or supported, and will no longer work on 64-bit-only versions of MacOS.
It includes a full-featured, syntax-highlighting text editor with Unicode capabilities and multiple undo/redo support. The Toolkit is the default editor for ExtendScript files, which use the extension .jsx.
- Inspect all data for a running script.
- Set and execute breakpoints.
When you double click a JSX file in the platform’s windowing environment, the script runs in the Toolkit, unless it specifies a particular target application using the #target directive.
File > Export as Binary.
The script loader recognizes both source code and compiled code. Photoshop and After Effects can execute compiled scripts.
