Comments on: Any good Flash-For-Javascripters Tutorials? http://isaacschlueter.com/2007/02/flash-for-javascripter-tutorials/ Just slightly more than my twitter stream. Fri, 20 Nov 2015 19:10:50 +0000 http://wordpress.org/?v=2.5.1 By: Isaac http://isaacschlueter.com/2007/02/flash-for-javascripter-tutorials/#comment-3167 Isaac Thu, 01 Mar 2007 23:01:19 +0000 http://isaacschlueter.com/2007/02/flash-for-javascripter-tutorials/#comment-3167 Thanks. Yeah, I have. It's pretty cool, and AS3 has some nice language features. The downside that we've found is that Flex makes pretty big flash movies (like, 120 KB minimum) because of all the components that get linked in every time. Do you know of a way around this problem? Also, if you want to use AS3, then it seems that you have to create movies that are only compatible with Flash 9, and we'll have to support at least Flash 7 or 8 (for now.) It's very promising, though! I'm currently investigating using something like this: http://www.mtasc.org/ Motion-Twin is a command-line compiler for actionscript which allows you to do everything in a text editor, and compile smaller flash movies that are supported by Flash 7. No AS3 or MXML, though :( Thanks. Yeah, I have. It’s pretty cool, and AS3 has some nice language features.

I've only just begun to crack the surface of the capabilites of flex, but so far it has been great for building RIA's. My current application is an enterprise dashboard that sits on top of a Business Intelligence tool and have found flex to be just what I need. Have you looked at flex?

You can find some more info on it at http://www.flyingwithfire.com/2006/08/25/jquery-inspired-actionscript-library/ and http://www.flyingwithfire.com/2006/08/29/jquery-inspired-actionscript-library-part-2/ I was fooling around with Flash last summer and, being a huge jQuery fan, wrote an actionscript library for doing just about anything I needed to without having to touch the flash gui!
