Where did ExtendScript go? How do we develop now?

I'm looking to write scripts for Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Photoshop.  I've written these before but it's been about a year since I last did any coding for CC products.  I've noticed that there is no longer an extend script toolkit included with Created Cloud. And the download button for Adobes ExtendScript webpage does not work.  The only place I was able to get a copy of ExtendScript was from the Adobe Archives.

 

I haven't tested it out yet, but I assume the archived software will get the job done for now.  Moving forward how are we supposed to create scripts for Adobe Applications?

You can use VSCode and the Extendscript Debugger plugin for this now. Takes a little learning to get it goin, but VSCode is a great environment. 

I made a video about this a while back if you want to check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qanB0Aq6Yuc&t=
