Robotlegs 2 + Feathers + Signals + Flickr = RoboFeskLer?


I’ve developed a little example/test on how to create a minimalistic Flickr gallery app for AIR mobile with the libraries mentioned above. Recently, I’ve been studying the Feathers UI framework for Starling, as well as the Robotlegs 2 framework for application architecture, two libraries that I like very much. I tried to find examples for this particular combination of libraries online, but I wasn’t that lucky, so I decided to make my own. If anyone has this particular need, have a look at the example in github:

You can click on the image above to launch it.

Complications appeared when trying to use Robotlegs 2 with Starling, but fortunately there is a workaround extension in its early stages. Other than that, I was lucky to find a signals extension for RL2 as well. There isn’t as much stuff out there as there is for RL1, but there is quite enough. Have a look at the README file on github for more details on the dependencies of the example.

Robotlegs 2 is great. Feathers is awesome. This setup should be nice for medium-large scale AIR based applications for mobile since it relies on GPU graphics completely and is supported on a solid architecture backbone.

I know I’m being a little vague here, this is not a tutorial, so if you would like any help regarding the setup, please don’t hesitate to comment below.

  1. Didn’t they remove signals from Feathers in favor of Starling events?

  2. Don’t know if you saw RL extension called SARS which enables you to use Starling with RL2 and signals. Also you can use multiple Starling instances in it. You just don’t pass Away3D view in it and that’s it:

    Best regards,

  3. I love how smooth Startling’s GPU rendering makes everything! Any idea what’s causing the slight glitches in the bottom scroller when dragging and throwing? Is it an issue that can be easily fixed?

  4. how did you study the robotlegs2.0?can you give me some resource or suggestions?
