Subject FXG spec (was: RE: Donation News)
Date Mon, 02 Dec 2013 23:12:52 GMT
I didn't work on FXG compilation but I don't think there is a programmatic spec for it. In
both the old compiler and in Falcon it seems to use a SAX parser.

Thanks for the info, Gordon.  I have been asking for the MXMLG/FXG spec for a while now. 
So, if that is something that could be donated, it will be of a big help for the FlexJS project.

Alex, my intention is to write an XSLT translator to make MXMLG/FXG and SVG to seamlessly
work together.  I have the beginnings of such an XSLT available here [1] and a basic example

But if we have a programatic spec for FXG available, I can plug it in into a tool like Altova
MapForce [3] to automatically generate an XSLT for FXG <-> SVG conversion.  This would
speed up things a lot and makes visual fidelity matching between Flash and HTML5 apps that
much closer.
