Create New Project from Git Source in Flash Builder

E.g., there is no kind of TRANSFORMATION_MATRIX_CHANGED event that is dispatched on the DisplayObject. If your DisplayObject still should react on a change of its transformation matrix, a […]

Twitter AS3 library TwitterScript Flex Example

I have been looking around for Actionscript 3 libraries for the retrieval of data via the very nice Twitter API. Basically, TwitterScript seems to be a good choice for a Twitter Flash library as it wraps Twitter query URLs and packs the XML results automatically in arrays.
