Subject [FlexJS] Hey Alex I'd like to help out
Date Mon, 18 Aug 2014 05:37:09 GMT
Hi Jacob,

It would be great to have your help.  Below is pretty much what I just
replied to Srinivas:

First, subscribe to this mailing list by sending an email to
dev-subscribe@flex.apache.org.  This is a pretty active mailing list.  We
try to prefix all FlexJS-related emails with [FlexJS] so you can apply a
filter if you want.

Then, get the latest (0.0.2) release from here:
http://flex.apache.org/download-flexjs.html
And read the wiki here:
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/FLEX/FlexJS

Then, try contributing in some way.  It can be as simple as reporting a
bug found in the code or documentation, or you can take try adding a new
component.  However, since you have extensive JS knowledge, if you have a
favorite JS framework, you can look into wrapping it for FlexJS.  If you
look at the current FlexJS source code there are early prototype wrappers
for parts of JQuery, CreateJS and Apache Cordova.  I'm hoping the tool
chain can be JS framework-agnostic, and that it will be easy to build
wrappers by re-purposing the current AS code, which is broken into small
pieces designed to be composited into higher-level components.

Use the JIRA bug base to submit contributions as patches.
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX/

Thanks,
-Alex
