Subject Re: Flex 5 in haxe
Date Fri, 16 Nov 2012 16:37:06 GMT
if i get it well, we'r not talking about converting the framework to 
haxe, but to rewrite the framework from scratch on haxe. and using the 
same (or almost) flex API.
It seems so far that trying to port an existing flex to HTML5 whether it 
is with flex on haxe, or any other choice, will be quite a dream. Your 
best chance is on FalconJs which is only prototype and has low perfs
IMO we are more trying to find a way for future new projects to be fully 
cross platforms, but old ones will be stuck with current targets.
