Subject AW: Possible FlexJS Port
Date Thu, 07 May 2015 08:18:26 GMT
Well if you need help with that Flexmojos & Maven Geek stuff ... I'm here to assist you
But at the moment I do agree FlexJS IS definitely Geekstuf, but I'm hoping to push down the
boundaries to intermediate level in the next few weeks :-)

Betreff: Re: Possible FlexJS Port

Hi Om,

That is truly amazing that a site with this kind of intricacy could actually
be ported into something that would run on an iPAD Safari browser, bypassing
the Apple AppStore.

I'm quite comfortable with pulling in screens one by one and adjusting
things until they run - that's my preferred method of development. If there
are bugs, then I'll work around them. I'll find a way. What I'm not sure
about is how to install the FlexJS sdk. You mentioned in your talk that the
sdk can be installed on Flashbuilder. You did not mention IntelliJ. I find
IntelliJ to be superior in just about every measure. Does it work on
IntelliJ? If not, then how precisely would one install it in Flashbuilder?

I am not at all familiar with Flexmojos or Maven or any of the manipulations
required to work with them. That stuff is complete Greek to me. However,
once I have an sdk installed on a system such as (hopefully) IntelliJ, then
I'm off and running. Is there something like the Apache Flex SDK Installer
that can download a FlexJS sdk, in the same way that one downloads Flex

Thanks in advance,
