AIR Distribution Kit

Tomorrow at FlashBelt I’ll be giving a presentation on Installation and Distribution Strategies in AIR. Since AIR applications are built using web technologies like JavaScript and ActionScript, many of the AIR users aren’t used to thinking about the installation and distribution strategies that desktop applications require. My presentation will cover a couple of these issues and show some sample solutions to these problems.

I’ll also be announcing the AIR Distribution Kit open-source project. This is a ActionScript 3 library for creating update functionality within AIR applications and for creating custom browser-based install applications (otherwise known as install badges). You can see more information about this project on my labs page. I just started this project, so there might be some bugs. Check it out and let me know what you think. Please let me know if you see anything you wish working differently or what features you’d like to see added in the future. If you’re interested in assisting with the development, please contact me.

    I can’t make the presentation, but would love to see your notes/slides, future blog posts, or anything else you can make available.
    Very topical for me, I’m putting together our first AIR distributed on DVD right at the moment, so would appreciate any insight at all.
    Would like to discuss, as well.
    Thanks for what you’ve done already.

    Hi Danny,

    Sounds like a great presentation, but the posted link in your ‘presentations’ section does not seem to work. Would love to see it, can you post the correct link?

    Thanks,

    Sidney
