Subject Re: [FlexJS] Installing FlexJS using NPM
Date Fri, 13 Feb 2015 21:23:44 GMT
Would be totally cool.

I didn’t try the flex sdk npm module, but it looks like it may actually be
downloading the Adobe Flex SDKs.  Hopefully the person who put this
together has permission to distribute, and is handling the presentation of
the license agreements for the Adobe bits like airglobal and playerglobal

IMO, Apache FlexJS via NPM will face similar issues because we still use
playerglobal and airglobal.

It would be an interesting task to see if we can make
playerglobal/airglobal optional in FlexJS.  I haven’t thought too much
about it, your email got me thinking about it.  I think we need
airglobal/playerglobal to develop the FlexJS SWCs, but I think it might be
true that if you are going to write cross-compilable code, the MXML and AS
you write won’t need any of the APIs in airglobal/playerglobal.  FB might
require it, although we might be able to stick in a dummy.
