Subject [ASJS] refactored JS framework and added publishing tool set
Date Thu, 06 Dec 2012 00:39:52 GMT

As the subject suggest, I've completely refactored the JS framework
and added the start of a publishing publishing tool set. What does
this mean?

1. I've taken the JS framework that was donated by Adobe, taken it
apart and put it back together again in such a way that it now play
nicely with the Google Closure tools (Library, Linter, Compiler and
Builder).  This give the framework developers a common ground to work
on and provides for an approximation of most AS language features
(inheritance, interfaces, access control etc.).

2. I've used ant to tie together the various available tools (FalconJS
compiler and Google's Closure Builder, mainly) in such a way that when
you run the build script in 'publisher', it'll take an AS project you
point it to and create an HTML/JS release that includes all the
framework JS files as well as the JS files resulting from the cross
compilation of the AS project, all nicely optimised and minified into
ONE JS file. You can already see most of this in action using a
'dummy' intermediate JS project I've added to SVN.

Now, the refactoring I did means that the current output of the
FalconJS compiler is no longer compatible with the FlexJS framework.
I'll try to create a set of rules (or a template, or what?) for the
compiler guys to see if they can change the FalconJS output such that
it becomes compatible with my version of the JS framework and tool
