Flex on Rails

Having endured the various failings of the Flash development experience for the last three or four versions, all the while hoping that the next version would bring such luxuries as a debugger that works or intellisense that works, I have been pleasantly suprised by Flex.

Now if you are wanting to recreate Star Wars or the Zidane headbutt incident then Flex isn’t for you as Flex is a kind of ‘Form’ based Flash rather than a timeline/movieclip job. If, however, you are after a rich UI for your application and you want it to run cross-platform in the browser then Flex is your man.

I’m sure I will write more about it in the future when I have more than the two weeks experience that I have currently but on the whole it is definitely worth a look.

Whilst looking around for resources on the web I stumbled upon a few tutorials about using Flex with Rails. Is there no escape…

(here is another one Flexstore on Rails)
