amfPHP and GraniteDS?

I recently had lunch with the good folks of GraniteDS, which among other things handles AMF for Java. We agree that it would be really cool to do something together. We are seriously considering a small project to start collaborating and test the waters: a website that promotes the AMF format. One other possible overlap [...]

Haxe WWX Conference, what’s next

I was there with my Silex Labs crew who organized it. We had a great time and it was a very positive vibe. Our story on it is here. Haxe right now is at a crossroad. It’s mature enough as a technology to go mainstream, and I think the market is ready for it.  Client [...]

Sommeria Search plugin for amfPHP allows to search Twitter

I’ve created a simple plugin for amfPHP that allows your app to search Twitter easily via amfPHP. The idea is to add more search engines later as needed, and to show this as an example of how easy it is to create plugins that add value to the amfPHP ecosystem. It is branded ‘Sommeria’ rather [...]

Linked Resources in Flash Builder

When projects relate to each other in Flash Builder, things get messy with paths. Sooner or later you end up with an absolute path in your build configuration, and that means your colleague won’t be able to build on checking out. Relative build paths would be nice, but in the meantime I found a fix [...]
