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: https://github.com/lidev/robotlegs2-signals-feathers-flickr-example/
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.
