new LocalConnection API rocks – and its OS :)
Evan Gifford over at Blitz has just come out with a new LocalConnection library over at google code called FlashLCS
When i finally get over to doing Xray again, i’ll be looking at retro fitting the LC code i’ve been using for years with this new library.
Some features as listed on the site:
- Dramatically reduces code and time required for runtime collaboration.
- Enables unlimited two-way communication between any two Flash files running on the same computer at 5MB/s or more.
- Enables new functionality for the Flash platform; from Flash pop-up panels in a browser to website companion desktop applications and multi-threaded Flash applications.
The demo over on Blitz’s site shows passing bitmapdata over an LC which really does rock.
