Subject Re: Flex 5 in haxe
Date Sat, 17 Nov 2012 16:47:28 GMT
yes i totally agree.
thats why the haxe way seems better for now. And thats why i still don't 
see any satisfying way to keep flex in AS3 for its long term future.
Justin, you did not answer "what is the essence of flex" for you? :)

> Well as we can't do that yet it's an unknown. However from what I've seen of the Falcon
JS compiler the answer is that ActionScript running in flash runtime is much faster. However
it's not just a mater of raw performance but more that Flex is optimised to work with the
Flash Player (frame frames, elastic racetrack, drawing api, display list etc etc) and that's
not how JS engines work.
