Nowadays, more and more open source projects are hosted on Github – amongst others some great Actionscript-based projects. Actually, Git makes it simple to clone and import a working project to which you can actually commit changes (at least to your cloned, local repository). However, I found it quite complicated to get from the git link to a working project in Flash Builder: I needed to consider a few aspects to get everything up and working. I want to present the approach that worked for me in the following. If you know or figure out a better way, make sure to post it in the comments!
