  • Twitterformats are community-driven, human-readable/writable, lightweight client-side APIs that extend Twitter to solve practical problems.

    Twitterformats add semantics to Twitter conversations and empower the community to evolve Twitter in an organic fashion.

    How it works

    Anyone can propose a new Twitterformat by sending a Proposal Ping. Twitterformat proposals are listed in the Formats section of this site.

    Community members can leave comments and rate Twitterformat proposals using a 5-star rating system.

    Twitter client developers adopt Twitterformats by implementing them in their apps. To have their efforts reflected in the Implementations section of this site, they send an Implementation Ping.

  • Introduction

    Flash MiniBuilder is a lightweight IDE created for developing programs written in ActionScript 3.

    Flash MiniBuilder is itself written in ActionScript

    Two of the main raison d'etre of MiniBuilder are

    * provide a completely free and cross platform alternative for developing ActionScript projects.
    * provide an editor with a small footprint that would eventually run on smaller computers like netbooks or even pocket-size devices.

    Extending, changing (and even integrating MiniBuilder with other software) is easy: MiniBuilder is itself written in your favourite language, AS3!

    This and some of it's unique features and concepts will make it the IDE of choice for lots AS3 developers.

    MiniBuilder will benefit from Adobe AIR's ability to launch applications from the browser. Code samples, online tutorials, code libr

  • HYPE is a creative coding framework built on top of ActionScript 3. A major goal of HYPE is to allow newcomers to Flash and ActionScript to creatively play and express themselves while they are learning how to program.

    To get started, the user needs only the most basic knowledge of programming – variables, conditionals, loops, and functions, for example.

    As the user learns more about programming they can extend HYPE and thus grow their skills, while at the same time inspiring the next generation.

  • flixel is a completely free collection of Actionscript 3 files that helps organize, automate, and optimize Flash games; an object-oriented framework that lets anyone create original and complex games with thousands of objects on screen in just a few hours. You can read more about it here.

  • As a self proclaimed programmer/designer I enjoy not only the logical and practical things in life, but also the beautiful and well designed. And I find the greatest pleasure when these things converge to produce something extraordinary.

    One such thing is Typography. Typography is the art of language, the visualization of the spoken word. A medium by which non-verbal communication is made possible. And though I profess no expertise in this art, I have come to deeply appreciate it’s power and ability to convey the same message in so many different ways. Each with a unique feeling and

  • Everyone codes differently and has their own way that they like to program, myself included. So, I thought I would take a second to share the typography choices I made for coding ActionScript and why.

  • Fourmation was created as a senior project by Digital Media students at Drexel University. The intent was to merge Flash technologies such as Papervision3D, WiiFlash, and SmartFox with virtual reality. What eventually developed was an original, innovative desktop application game that utilizes Wiimotes and head tracking. Fourmation is not only a game, it is an experience.

  • The HydraFramework is a prescriptive development framework for Flex that facilitates rapid development of encapsulated, scalable components and applications.
  • Adobe Flex is a great platform to work with for creating rich engaging applications of all sizes for the web and now the desktop with AIR. Now we are at Flex version 3 and the next version Flex 4, which is the SDK, and the editor now called Flash Builder are just around the corner.

    There are a number of resources, guides and articles that I use regularly when building Flex or AIR applications. This is a growing resource so bookmark the page and feel free to suggest anything that I may have missed.
