What is an .ANE file?

.ANE is Adobe AIR Native Extension

Developer file used by Adobe AIR, a component that enables HTML, JavaScript, and Flash to run as standalone desktop or mobile applications; allows system specific functions, such as device vibration, to be invoked using Adobe ActionScript code.

AIR Native Extensions wrap native system code in Adobe's ActionScript language. For example, to invoke volume or vibrate functions on an Android device, the ANE file would contain native Android source code written in Java that can be run through an ActionScript function call.

ANE files are also used for bundling third-party libraries and frameworks in AIR applications.
