Subject Re: Re: [DISCUSS] Name of the FlexJS Fork
Date Fri, 15 Sep 2017 14:20:46 GMT

I'm with Om and others that one of the results we pursue with this renaming
is to avoid the "Flex" name. We talked about the problems we have today
with clients when "Flex" is put in a discussion. You pay in terms of
credibility to your client.

For migration : As a customer, I don't think migration is a real option.
FlexJS impose a very different code so almost all must be rewritten. You
only can think in maintain your languages (AS3/MXML) and environments (FB,
IDEA,...), so for me there's no much room there to discuss. I must say that
nowadays people like us considering to migrate would consider other actual
techs like Angular or React since the cost is similar and they get the
popular framework in 2017.

I see this renaming as a way to rebrand all our project and present it to
the world with new visuals and marketing. And try to compete in the same
terms they do. Same kind of name, same kind of website, and so on...

About Alex proposal to make different packages I think it could work, but
for me that would be a plan after rename, rebranding and website creation.
We can have it in mind for next steps after that. For me we need the same
top name for product and project, and then we can release a package for
people wanting to migrate called "apache XXX FlexJS" or something. But
consider that to make that real we will need people interested in make such
package and work for it. And consider how many people will be planing to
migrate from Flex and will find that FlexJS is completely different and
they can do it easily.

@Piotr, my plans will be to work (if people wants me on that) on: website,
logo design.... for me the motivation to work in that things is to get a
name that will make me think we can reach our goals, since if I don't
believe in a name will be complicated to give us a good work.
Far beyond that I always want to put work on the visuals of a component
design, I think we need that as we need the website and new name.
