Amidst the hustle and bustle leading up to MAX, I managed to steal some time to work on a skunkworks project. The idea was to let people experience the fun and instant gratification of Flex, without needing to download and install anything at all. And thus The FLEXifier.
Using The FLEXifier you can enter and compile any combination of MXML and ActionScript (the one limitation being that you can only compile a single file, so no external files or data or images). You can start with one of the examples, or enter code of your own. Assuming the code compiles you’ll see the results immediately (if not, you’ll see error messages instead). And then, when you are happy with your creation, The FLEXifier can even e-mail the SWF and MXML to you directly.
The application itself is a combination of ColdFusion and Flex Java libraries. Initially I was using
Enjoy The FLEXifier, and if you have suggestions on how to improve it, please share.
