Some special networking features can optionally use a Flash component. Building the output SWF file requires the Flex SDK. A pre-built component is included:
Building the output SWF requires the
mxmlc tool from the Flex SDK. If that tools is already installed then look in the
package.json file for the commands to rebuild it. If you need the SDK installed, there is a npm module that installs it:
To build a regular component:
npm run build
Additional debug support can be built in with the following:
npm run build-debug
Flash support requires the use of a Policy Server.
mod_fsp provides an Apache module that can serve up a Flash Socket Policy. See
mod_fsp/README for more details. This module makes it easy to modify an Apache server to allow cross domain requests to be made to it.
policyserver.py provides a very simple test policy server.
policyserver.js provides a very simple test policy server. If a server is needed for production environments, please use another option such as perhaps nodejs_socket_policy_server.
