  1. 1. Drupal & Adobe Technologies DrupalCampLA 2007 Drupal & Adobe Technologies
  2. 2. Who are you? Oh - Chris Charlton LA Drupal member Authorized Adobe ● ● Flex Champion Drupal fan ● LA Air manager ● Drupal user ● LA Flash member ● Drupal advocate ● Flex book author ● Drupal integrator ● Web Standards ● Community helper ● teacher at the RMI (help, articles, code) A very chill dude ● A chill dude ● DrupalCampLA 2007 Drupal & Adobe Technologies
  3. 3. Adobe Technologies Adobe owns the designer's realm and is going ● for developers with a $100,000,000 campaign. Adobe created PDF. ● Adobe owns Flash. ● Adobe created and open sourced Flex. ● Adobe now has a desktop runtime - AIR. ● DrupalCampLA 2007 Drupal & Adobe Technologies
  4. 4. Adobe Flash Player JIT (Just-in-time compiler) ● Audio (AAC, M4A, MP3) ● Video (H.264, 3GP, MOV, FLV) ● Sockets (XML, Binary) ● XML – E4X, XPath ● CSS (Cascade Style Sheets) ● Talks to PHP, .Net, Ruby, CFML, JS, AMF ● Most distributed software on the web! ● DrupalCampLA 2007 Drupal & Adobe Technologies
  5. 5. Adobe Frameworks Flex - open ActionScript framework. ● Spry – JavaScript (Ajax) framework. ● DrupalCampLA 2007 Drupal & Adobe Technologies
  6. 6. Flex It's a framework for RIAs. ● Adobe Flex Builder is the product (design view). ● The SDK, compiler, and framework are free. ● Flex 2 is out now, Flex 3 comes Q4-Q1 2008. ● New Flex release doesn't always mean a new ● Flash Player release, like Java (?). Languages: MXML (XML-based markup) and ● ActionScript 3 (similar to JavaScript). DrupalCampLA 2007 Drupal & Adobe Technologies
  7. 7. Adobe AIR Flash Platform for the desktop. True cross- ● platform UI's for Mac, Windows, Linux (Solaris). AIR apps are compiled; written in ActionScript, ● JavaScript, or both in Flex, Flash, or pure JS. APIs for File I/O, SQLite, Network & ● Connectivity, WebKit (Embedded Web Browser) Windowed-application (native/custom), load popular video and audio formats and PDF. DrupalCampLA 2007 Drupal & Adobe Technologies
  8. 8. Take one drop of Drupal... Drupal is a CMF before it's a CMS: ● CMF – Content Management Framework CMS – Content Management System Drupal is open like Flex. ● A CMF, like Drupal, can be used for more than ● just websites for developers and businesses. DrupalCampLA 2007 Drupal & Adobe Technologies
  9. 9. Easy Mix (Drupal + Flash/Flex) Website with a rich presentation layer: ● Pages – Blogs – Calendar & Events – Forum – Video/Audio – DrupalCampLA 2007 Drupal & Adobe Technologies
  10. 10. No Duh! (Now) Mix (Drupal + Flex) Administration overhauls: ● Productivity and efficiency – More data, cleaner, faster, easier to touch and see. ● Present content differently depending on user levels – (no one cares to learn Drupal terminology) C-module (Apache) to compile MXML to SWF ● on the fly, essentially a replacement for standard markup files (HTML). Drupal template engine running on XSL/XSLT = ● mad props since I can push MXML or XHTML. DrupalCampLA 2007 Drupal & Adobe Technologies
  11. 11. Untasted Mixes (Drupal + AIR) Desktop content management application. ● Custom (node) content types for applications: ● Bug or feedback reporting – Software dashboard/start-page news, updates, etc. – Knowledge base and documentation – Log-in screens (unmodified). ● PDF interactivity (XML-PDF, server-side scripts) ● DrupalCampLA 2007 Drupal & Adobe Technologies
