Technical Details, Features and Constraints
Motivation: Create a “useful” client mashup using Flex 2 and public Web Services and RSS feeds in only one day without write any custom server side code.
Total development time: One day (Includes coding, testing, googling and lunch time :P )
Number of Developers: Just Me.
Server Side Code Created: None
Data Feeds, Web Services and Web Sites Involved: Last.fm, YouTube, Yahoo Pipes, Google Analytics.
Known Issues: Sometimes Firefox “freezes” after video playing. Flash Video that doesn’t have complete metadata can “crash” the app.
Lessons Learned: Datatipfield doesn’t work “perfectly” with xml datasources. Handling Flash Video Metadata is a little bit “tricky”. ExternalInterface Rocks!
You can try the application here.
Greetings from Colombia. Keep Flex-coding!!
