I take inspiration by the excellent tutorial Napolux , Flex 3 and Adobe AIR APIs Feedburner , which shows how to write a simple application (or widget) Adobe AIR using Flex 3, to show how to accomplish the same thing using Adobe Flash CS3. If you wish, also, you can take advantage of the extension for creating Adobe AIR applications. It is not necessary for the purposes of this tutorial, compile your AIR application as an executable, you can use the code proposed as a simple Flash movie "affix" to your Web pages
This is the first release, 0.8 (aligned with version online ), Skype Emotions Editor - Skypemote - version of Adobe AIR . For now, the features are the medisime version online , with the advantage of being a desktop application, then be installed on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Before installation, remember to update and / or install for the first time the runtime Adobe AIR , if you have not already done so.
In Actionscript 3.0 for beginners: lesson # 1 we saw the necessary steps for creating a project in Flash CS3. So I came up with the idea of automating, somehow, this process due to the features of Adobe AIR .
As3corelib project is a library written in ActionScript 3, which contains a set of classes and utilities to extend the development with ActionScript 3. Support is included for MD5 and SHA 1, JPG and PNG encoders, and JSON serialization for strings, numbers, dates and APIs. Libreia This is really useful in the development of Flash applications and can he give the best of himself in tandem with Adobe AIR!
Of the various package present the most interesting are com.adobe.crypto and com.adobe.images. The first allows you to manage the coding MD5, SHA1, SHA224 and SHA256, so really simple: using the method
hash() you pass the string and returns the source-coding! The package even allows images to get the encoder JPG or PNG from a simple bitmap Flash!
ByteArray that represents the encoding JPG, Flash permitting, can be saved to disk direttamento! To learn more you can follow this tutorial video on how to save a PNG image - from a video object - on disc by as3corelib .
Adobe AIR applications have the advantage of being relatively small in file size thanks to the installation of separate Adobe AIR 1.0 runtime libraries . This advantage, however, it can become a real problem when you are ready to deploy an Adobe AIR application, both on the network (ie the browser) either on a rigid support such as a CD / DVD.
I created this little Adobe AIR application for all fans of the SuperEnaLotto. This application, very funny, you can:
- Generate six sextuplets (with or without repetitions) to play
- To enter or generate a sestina and check how many times you should play to make 3, 4, 5 or 6
Obviously if someone ever make a nice 6 with this "play" remember me with a small donation
Turning on various blog (thanks Frank) and thanks to discussions with Julius , I realized that, in addition to the extreme interest in Adobe AIR , there is also a lot of confusion, and rightly so. Both developers and users continue to not be clear about what it is, what it is for and how it is developed in Adobe AIR . I decided, therefore, to collect the various discussions in this sort of FAQ to try to clear a little 'what actually is hiding behind Adobe AIR.
