Subject Starling + Flex
Date Thu, 14 Jun 2012 16:46:17 GMT
Recently I've been getting aquatinted with Starling to see if it could work
with Flex. After a few days of playing I think that it is possible but I do
see the issues now and there is plenty of work that is necessary to make it

To get things going I basically cut down the UIComponent (to the parts that
I cared about), made a copy of the entire Flex framework (as many
interfaces rely on DisplayObject, etc), replaced them with Starling
classes, rebuilt some of the Spark primitives, and "adjusted" some of the
starling classes to fit some of the Flash interfaces.

At this point I'm definitely going to wait to get the 4.8 release out
before giving this more time but I think it is possible. I'm sure other
developers are already aware of it but if we could make some new interfaces
such as an IDisplayObject it would be much easier switching out
DisplayObject for a Starling DisplayObject.

Just thinking out loud at this point.
