Subject AW: New Flex to JS project

No effort at all ... that's what GIT rebase is for.

You can think of this sort of an automated "Create-Patch, Revert, Update, Apply Patch" ...
if all goes well, it's just this one command, if there are conflicts, you get the usual conflict
editor you would get anyway if you created conflicts on develop.

Betreff: Re: New Flex to JS project

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the feedback.

I'm talking about FalconJX, not Falcon. The latter is the "new" SWF
compiler, the former is the Flex to JavaScript cross compiler.

I guess a feature branch might work... But I'm afraid that keeping that
branch up to date with the 'develop' branch will add extra work. How to
best handle that part, so I don't spend what little time I have on Git
stuff instead of code?
