Pixel Bender Explorer: Bending Ext AIR Apps

Pixel Bender Explorer: Bending Ext AIR Apps

February 19, 2009 | Aaron Conran

Pixel Bender is an exciting new technology by Adobe which brings video and image processing capabilities to flash. It allows you to create and apply filters to ‘bend’ pixels and create compelling animations which have never been possible in an HTML environment. Because Adobe AIR uses flash to load any HTML content, we can leverage these powerful filters on a standard Ext Application in the AIR environment. Ext is releasing a Pixel Bender Explorer demo which allows you to explore many of the new filters and demonstrates how to integrate them into an Ext AIR Application.

One of the key additions in Ext 2.0.2 was Adobe AIR 1.0 support for running in the application sandbox. Also, the Simple Tasks AIR application sample was rewritten to take advantage of more of the native functionality in AIR and gained some cool custom Ext components that can be used outside of AIR.

Building a desktop application with Ext, AIR, Aptana and Red Bull

Building a desktop application with Ext, AIR, Aptana and Red Bull

June 30, 2007 | Jack Slocum

Ext JS is an excellent framework for building web applications that have desktop like functionality in a web browser. But what if you could take your JavaScript powered application and run on the desktop like any other native application? The launch of Adobe AIR (formerly Apollo) has made this not only a reality, but extremely easy. Armed with early access Ext 2.0, Aptana IDE and a 4 pack of Red Bull  I set out to build my first AIR application.
