Doing a project for a customer that want flash with WordPress and I had trouble finding some specific files on what needed to be done. Found a great class for Actionscript 2.0 here: (http://xmlrpcflash.mattism.com/) and a Actionscript 3.0 library here (http://danielmclaren.net/2007/08/03/xmlrpc-for-actionscript-30-free-library/). It gave a very basic example of how to make a WordPress call, so I took it a little further and created some methods with all the parameters needed to do a wp.getPages call & return. Anyhow, click here or on the image to download the zip file of the example.
I was reminded today about this project I did four years ago. Built my own Flash video player, with scrubber, all form a XML file that controls it all. Not bad IMHO, but I know I could do so much better with Actionscript 3 or dare I say it, HTML5. Click here to view it
Had a lot of fun with this site. I added a theme selector because a color scheme couldn’t get decided upon, but it came out really cool. I used the sharedObject method to hold the users selection and it all came out pretty good. The sire has a great look to it and all of it is dynamic using AMFPHP with a MySQL back-end. Hopefully they’ll be able to keep up with the functionality I set in place. Podcasts are a new thing to them and they don;t fully grasp how to use this tool in distributing the Word of God.
So I’ve finally got some ground work laid out for my flash based eCommerce solution. I’m having fun with the admin portion of it. I added post it notes for the user to leave notes to themselves and had it throw into a table the x/y cord’s of each item. Also created the ability to quickly add a new note and zoom the individual post it notes with a double click. Not a highly functional piece, but a real fun one from a user perspective. I created the user interface to include a menu selection with what I hope to have is a full eLearning video tutorial section. As I write this, I now need to re-code it all in Actionscript 3.0, so I might OpenSource this thing at some point.
Check it out if you want. I’ve stripped out most of the functionality to create a demo site, but you are welcome to take any of the ideas I had from the site. You can get a good idea as to how it works: http://jjborja.com/phyxius/admin/

Completed 3 of 4 proof of concepts for a potential customer today. Had to do this last minute because I was informaed 2 days ago that the owner would be in town and that he is expecting a semi-funtional PoC. Quickly whipped out a flash based site with some minimal functionality. Also added an Employer Login admin site. Feel free to check it out using ‘jjborja’ as the username and ‘password’ for the password. Data is not connected to it so you won;t see anything, but at least you can see the concept.
Look forward to showing you what we did for the expo piece that will be running off a 60″ liquid plasma screen.
