Static code analysis tools like JSLint can be a real time saver when working with JavaScript. It can be somewhat frustrating only finding out about errors in your code at runtime. It’s especially true when working with Flash Pro’s HTML5 Canvas document, where a simple typo can leave you with a blank page in your browser.

That’s where the JSLinter extension for Flash Pro CC comes in. It performs static code analysis on your timeline JavaScript and helps to detect any errors and potential problems. The extension was written by Adobe’s Hemanth Kumar R and can be downloaded from his blog. I’ve also embedded a video above of Hemanth demonstrating how to use the extension.
