Subject Re: Time for an Apache Flex compiler.
Date Thu, 16 Feb 2012 12:51:50 GMT
i'm definitely in.
as3 and mxml to swf is a must, compile to js would be great for webapps,
but I'd like to see this
multitarget approach targeting other platforms too, expecially c\c++.
if flash\air doesn't run in the platform my project is targeting i would be
enabled to reuse my code and
convert it to c\c++ code.
i don't mean to create another portable vm, there have been other mail
talking about this as an option but
i don't think it would be a good way. my idea is to generate c\c++ code
which can be "plugged" to
different implementations of the base classes. at first we need to create
headers of all the base classes belonging
to playerglobal and airglobal, then anyone may implement those functions by
himself and
compile a native program for a non supported platform.
it's something similar to what haxe already does, but the starting source
code would be in as3\mxml.
