Object-Orientated API

Overview

xJSFL follows modern JavaScript practices such as class-based design, chainable method calls and overloaded functions to make JSFL development a breeze. What that means in practice is a more expressive way of coding everyday JSFL, and far, far less code.

For example, traditionally, reading and writing a text file in JSFL takes about 4 lines:

var uri = FLfile.platformPathToURI('c:/temp/some file.txt');
var txt = FLfile.read(uri);
txt += 'This is some more text';
FLfile.write(uri, txt);

In xJSFL, the same thing can be accomplished in a single line:

new File('c:/temp/some file.txt').contents += 'This is some more text';

This is typical of xJSFL; in fact the framework and its libraries are written in such a way that you can get more results from less code, making it easier to read, easier to write, and easier to build bigger and more complex tools and scripts.
