Subject RE: [FlexJS] Output folders with FB
Date Mon, 25 Sep 2017 16:06:23 GMT
Hi Piotr,


Many thanks for your answer.


However, this does not work : the documentation clearly states that the –output compiler
option is used to specify an “output directory AND file name”.

And that is true !


If you add 


to the compiler “command line” options it makes the compiler write the SWF output with
the name “myfile.swf” in the folder specified by “mypath”.


But the JS output is still written in the js-debug folder under the workspace root !


In fact, the “output folder” text input from “project > properties > flex build
path” pane just passes the text input value to the –output option of the compiler (after
appending {project name}.swf).

The only difference is that if you specify the output folder in “flex build path” AND
the compiler option, the compiler option overrides the specified build path (it overrides
both the path and the output SWF filename) which seems quite understable.


What seems missing is some kind of “js-compiler-output” parameter.


But, at least, it seems to me that the js compiler should use the path from the “-output”
option when building its own output path…and not the source path.


All suggestions are welcome !


Nicolas Granon

Hi Nicolas,


The first which come up to my mind is to specify for compiler option -output=pathtofolder.


Glad to hear that you are trying FlexJS!


Thanks, Piotr 



2017-09-25 14:01 GMT+02:00 Nicolas Granon <ngranon@online.fr>:

We are currently investigating FlexJS (we have a large code base developed
with Flex 4.7, using FlashBuilder 4.7 and have to decide to migrate to
FlexJS or ReactJS).

Our concern is about web apps only (we will keep all AIR apps as they are).

On our first tests, we have successfully installed FlexJS 0.8.

FB seems to compile correctly to both SWF and JS.

However, we cannot figure out how we can setup FB so that the JS output is
sent to a location relative to the SWF output ???

We send the SWF output (using FB's project settings / output folder) to a
folder under the http server root (in the bin-debug folder) but the
generated js version always goes automatically in the bin/js-debug folder
located in the workspace/project folder.

How is it possible to override the output folder for the js version ? (since
of course there is nothing in FB for specifying JS output folders)

Shouldn't it go automatically to the bin/js-debug relative to the bin-debug
folder ? Or is there a compiler option that must be set in the project
settings/compiler pane ?

(our setup is windows, FlashBuilder 4.7)

Many thanks in advance
