If you would like to follow the programming tutorial on your own laptop, please install Flex Builder and download the Flare visualization libraries before the tutorial. A set of sample Flex applications will be also posted before the tutorial.
- Flash Builder is a development environment for Action Script/Flex applications, and is based on the Eclipse IDE. You have the option to install Flash Builder as a separate program or as an Eclipse plug-in. Either option is okay although the sperate program is easier to install and more robust.
Inspired by Prefuse, Flare is an Action Script library for creating visualization for Adobe Flash Player. The tutorial is aimed at familiarizing you with some of the packages in Flare.
- Please download the project file if you wish to follow along on your laptop. We will go through the four example applications contained in this Flex project.
