ExtendScript Developer Tools

Adobe Creative Cloud Plugin

ExtendScript Developer Tools

Execute jsx scripts and run ExtendScript commands easily from a panel.

This plugin allows you to inspect the Adobe API, letting you access features beyond those stated in the documentation, such as the QE API. This extension is designed not only for professional plugin developers, but also for automation engineers and enthusiasts interested in learning more about hidden functionality in Adobe products such as Photoshop, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Illustrator, and others.



ExtendScript Developer Console

Run and inspect ExtendScript commands in the extensions panel. No need for external tools or administrative privileges. Learn more about the return types, methods parameters, etc. than by just reading the respective API documentation.

Variable Inspection

Inspect variables and functions by analyzing the global namespace or clicking on objects in the developer console. The latter allows you access to the Adobe API’s variables and methods, as well as the functionality provided by other plugins. Not only will you be able to learn more about the APIs, but you will also be able to debug your extensions.

Many API calls are not officially documented by Adobe, but they may be inspected using these features, providing you an advantage when developing features that aren’t possible with the documented API alone.

JSX Editor

Run, load, and save JSX scripts at runtime. No need for an external IDE or restarting your application to re-run the script. This feature is both helpful for developers testing their code and also for professionals and hobbyists automating workflows.
