It’s very interesting for people doing integration between Flex 4 and LAMP server development.It used AMFphp and Adobe Catalyst also involved ZEND Framework. I think it’s especially helpful for Flex developers who start thinking of using Catalyst. This will have your expectation in check, Catalyst is not developers’ tool.

5 HTML Tags You Might not Know

Posted by Charles | December 4, 2009 | 3 Comments

You are all cheering the coming HTML5 and tired of the aging HTML5. But I bet you might not know these 5 HTML tags, which can be usefully: <acronym> The <acronym> tag is a way to define or further explain a group of words. When you hover over text that has the <acronym> tag used, a box appears below with the text from the title tag. For example: Flex <ACRONYM title="Rich Internet Application blog">RIA</ACRONYM> is fun.

Posted by Charles | December 1, 2009 | 1 Comment

I think so.Mark Milian and Harry McCracken have been collecting the murder evidence, which has been mounting for months: • Gears is not supported in Mac versions of Chrome• Standalone Gears is not supported in Snow Leopard, months after release• Google’s been evasive about Gears support in Chrome OS, even though offline web apps are a vital part of it• Google hasn’t announced a new Gears-compatible product in monthsGoogle has been entering the RIA client side space.

Color Matters – Color Scheme Designer

Posted by Charles | October 11, 2009 | Comment

I like colors, I hate colors. That’s why I love colors. A RIA without creative skinning job is not a complete RIA. A RIA with ugly color scheme is worse than a plain old HTML page. One tool I frequently come back to test (taste) the color scheme is the Color Scheme Designer.

It gives you six schemes of color schemes, mono, complement, triad, tetrad, analogic and accented analogic.  These won’t make much of sense without seeing them with this nice little tool.

This best part of this tool is the Light page example and Dark page example tabs. They bring […] Continue Reading…

Posted by Charles | October 10, 2009 | Comment

I was asked to find a web hosting company that can help a stay-home friend quickly and cheaply setting up a web site. Since I don’t have much of time to help her constructing the web pages, I need a hosting that can go a bit further for just raw site. I found Pickaweb, which is no doubt the perfect fit I was looking for.

I was drawn to its price first, and then the Website Builder caught my eyes. From the examples I can see those are very professional quality site templates. It’s the right tool for people just […] Continue Reading…
