Subject Re: Royale Static ASDoc
Date Tue, 23 Jan 2018 23:16:48 GMT
Without doubt "routing", so getting a library that make royale search
friendly is the most important task there.
That's one of the things that people will need. My way of thinking is
always order by order of priority.
So routing is one of the key things all tech need to have in order to be
considered by our users
