Subject RE: Cross-compiling Flex to HTML5/Javascript (Was : Update on Falcon donation)
Date Thu, 30 Aug 2012 00:51:17 GMT
My perhaps naive vision of what FalconJS would do (at least in the first  
version), was that it would grab some kind of HTML5 canvas element; and do  
everything in that rectangle: all drawing and event handling would occur in  
that element. It's a 'simple' way to put a foot in the door of the HTML5  
world. Well, I know that almost nothing is really simple. But it may be the  
simplest way. Sorry if you guys had all that figured out already, I'm a  
newbie here. ;o)

Anyway, I wonder how realistic this approach is.

>Whereas with HTML(5) there is nothing in the standard that will let us do  
specialization (via inheritance or composition)  I cannot dream up new  
elements and expect a browser to understand it out of the box.

In flash player there is nothing but a text field and the ability to make  
some rectangles.... how did we get to Flex?
