Working a 70 hour week dampened my enthusiasm for the MChumby but I managed to scrape a couple of hours today to try my hand with HaXe + Flash to prototype the Chumby Interface.
A few interesting tidbits were learned from the experiments :-
- HaXe + Geany are great for developing flash widgets for the Chumby
- Gnash doesn’t render the same as Linux Adobe Flash
- Chumby renders the same as Adobe Flash
- Text vertical alignment in flash is crap
A bit of background and a demo video of the widget on the Chumby after the break.
