AMFPHP in Flash CS3 with AS3 - jQuery.post style

Monday, July 28th, 2008

The other day I was asked to demonstrate how to setup AMFPHP in Flash. As I’ve already done it many times in Flash 8 with little or no problems I felt relaxed about it.

Templating in Pico Lisp

Thursday, July 17th, 2008

As you might know already Pico has a GUI system similar to for instance Haml. That’s all very well and fine, the problem is that as opposed to Haml a typical Pico GUI script contains a lot of logic as well, I shudder to think having designers poking around in there to output the HTML just like they want it. And we are not quite yet at the point where we are doing completely CSS controlled designs, it’s a goal though.... Read More
