ScreamingDonkey - Tomorrow’s browser scripting, today. kinda.

Monday, May 19th, 2008

Here we go. ESC is far along enough to start treating it like a working ecmascript compiler. Combined with my little JSObject hack and some glue, you end up with something that gives you a taste of things to come.
So here is ScreamingDonkey. Not to be confused with ScreamingMonkey, a serious project done by the (…)

As3 Eval updated

Saturday, May 17th, 2008

I’ve grabbed some recent .abc binaries from the Mozilla Tamarin repository. The ESC project is moving along quite nicely apparently, as this version is able to compile a lot more constructs. For example, it has enough namespace support to let scripts access objects located in other packages (see the sample code on the “Eval UI” (…)

JSObject. It’s not just for Java anymore.

Friday, January 4th, 2008

Back in the days, Netscape created this neat layer of glue called LiveConnect. Among other things, it would expose javascript objects to Java through a JSObject class.
Fast forward to ActionScript. ExternalInterface provides a way of eventually doing the same thing. Things like FABridge make things somewhat friendlier, but FABridge only deals with accessing ActionScript goodies (…)

As3Crypto 1.3 is out, TLS support is in.

Monday, November 19th, 2007

There we go, Flash now has a TLS 1.0 implementation written entirely in ActionScript.
In spite of my previous post, I didn’t feel right releasing something that didn’t have a shot at protecting against Man-in-the-middle attacks, so I took a few more days to implement some X.509 certificate parsing and validating.
This release ships with a number (…)

More Fractals in AS3

Wednesday, November 8th, 2006

My little fractal viewer has been updated. We now have pretty colors, julia support, smoother zooming, back and forward support (in firefox), and bookmark-able links.
For example, you can now go directly in a pink Julia fractal
Alternatively, you can check out the weird fractal in the thumbnail. It’s not quite mandelbrot, and not quite julia, and (…)

Tiny mandelbrot fractal viewer in ActionScript 3.0

Sunday, October 29th, 2006

I need to pick up actionscript 3.0 quickly, so I figured I’d write a few small test programs for it.
When I was young, I’d waste hours waiting for FractInt to put together some really pretty images. I never really wrote my own little fractal programs, for whatever reason.
This seemed like a good opportunity to mix (…)
