Apache FlexJS

Apache FlexJS is a next-generation Flex SDK that has the goal of allowing applications developed in MXML and ActionScript to not only run in the Flash/AIR runtimes, but also to run natively in the browser without Flash, on mobile devices as a PhoneGap/Cordova application, and in embedded JS environments such as Chromium Embedded Framework. FlexJS has the potential to allow your MXML and ActionScript code to run in even more places than Flash currently does.

Install the Apache FlexJS NPM Module globally

npm install flexjs -g

(There are a couple of prompts you need to answer before installation starts)


After global installation, the following compiler tools will be available for you to use: mxmlc, compc, asjsc, asjscompc, asnodec, and externc.


mxmlc <path to main .mxml file>
asjsc <path to main .as file>


There are several examples that ship with the FlexJS npm module. They are located in: Windows:




You can compile them with FlexJS like this:

MXMLC (Targets apps built for the FlexJS SDK, which creates a SWF file as well as HTML5/JavaScript output)


mxmlc C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\flexjs\examples\flexjs\ChartExample\src\main\flex\ChartExample.mxml


mxmlc /usr/local/lib/node_modules/flexjs/examples/flexjs/ChartExample/src/main/flex/ChartExample.mxml

ASJSC (Write ActionScript3 targeting HTML5/SVG DOM without requiring JavaScript):


asjsc C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\flexjs\examples\native\USStatesMap\src\main\flex\


asjsc /usr/local/lib/node_modules/flexjs/examples/native/USStatesMap/src/main/flex/

You may need to copy the examples to a writeable folder because the compilation will generate an output folder in the example folders.
