Charles Vidal has written a package [3 ] which apparently generates Flash (SWF file) with Tcl. It's an extension of ming [2 ] but the new version 0.3 don't compile anymore with tcl. So the package [1 ] compile but it's the version 0.2
Zarutian is, as of 6th september 2005, looking for pure-tcl implementation of Action Message Format, the core of Flash Remoting.
(A pure-tcl swf generator wouldnt hurt ;-)
Neat things that an AMF-TCL implemention would allow:
- Simple shared desktop
- Simple ridiculus multiplayer games
- Tclkit + tclhttpd.kit + AMF-TCL = ?very easy deployment of rich internet application?
(SWF can stand for Shock Wave Flash and is its file suffix)
- "5 Reasons Not To Use Flash" [4 ] provides a relatively sophisticated and diverse analysis in just a few words
- "5 Reasons Not To Use Flash" [5 ] is a distinct piece, with the same title as the previous one, which provides slightly more depth
- "When NOT to Use Flash" [6 ] is pitched at managers' comprehension level
- "Flash: 99% Bad" [7 ] was Jakob Nielsen's contribution in 2000
- "6 Reasons Not To Use Flash On Your Website" [8 ]
- "Making Good Use of Flash on Websites: When You Should and Shouldn't Use It" [9 ] is aimed directly at small business owners. Its technical errors are minor, and it appropriately frames the discussion.
Notice that all of these are written by "creatives" or their close colleagues; this more than explains their common style, which strikes developers as formulaic.
