Subject Re: There's some example of MXRoyale to look at?
Date Wed, 25 Apr 2018 16:36:26 GMT
Hi Carlos,

I think these components are going to look ugly for a little while longer.  Also, I have been
trying to get them to work for SWF output as well because Alina's app uses modules extensively
and having the Flash version verify interfaces could be a huge time savings.  Eventually,
I hope that we can replace the views in the emulation components with Jewel views.  The SWF
version of the Jewel views don't have to look great, it just has to take up the same space
on the screen.  We just want to make sure we can run most of the code paths through the verifier.

If you have time to try mocking the visuals for SWF that would be interesting to see.

I'm mainly saying that I don't think blog posts about these components is going to look nearly
as attractive as the Jewel blog posts

My 2 cents,

    That sounds very good. Congrats!

    Alex, I think is not realistic to think we can get people on board showing
    Basic examples, or thinks that "doesn't look good". For me, I had a long
    journey to start producing things that looks in a way we can blog, twit and
    so on..., so what you see wasn't worth it, for me is the key factor.
    Now I can start to spread the word about this effort in social networks. I
    tried the examples, but need to fix poms to build with maven. I'll do it
    today in order to see it working.
    If we can show that work, and make people out there know about it, maybe we
    can bring you more people to help in that effort.
