getting started with air, and extjs-air
so I was writing an ext application, where I needed some features air would provide. Unfortunately the only tutorials I could find were the basic ext+air+redbull from jack, and a couple of other short blog articles. It would be nice to have a basic getting started tutorial somewhere, either a forum sticky, or in the learning section.
here are some things I struggled with:
Once I had it installed, I had no idea how to bring in the examples, so the best method I have found so far, is to create a new aptana air project, and import the examples files, replacing the application.xml.
is there a better way to do that?
any other tips for a ext-air newbie?

you can download the ext-air package and use the examples inside as a starting point.
I usually don't use aptana since they work with Air 2.0. How did you add your own sdk?
You can use this post to get an overview how to structure your app directory and your main.html file.

I ve created a document that describe how to use GWT(EXT-GWT) and AIR in Eclipse. Since GWT basically produce HTML/JS/CSS from Java you can use the same approach for your EXT-JS project. The document can be downloaded here : http://code.google.com/p/gwt4air/downloads/list (setup.doc)
If you have any question feel free to contact me.

Download the Aptana IDE
It s much easier to develop air applications with it.
Just go to New->AIR project
The rest is pretty straightforward.
If you have any questions feel free to ask .

Did I understand right that at the moment Air plugin for Aptana is availible only for Aptana 2?
I install Aptana 3 and can't install Air.
Also on Aptana site it is said about Aptana 2 for Air.

Because Aptana now belongs to Appcelerator i think they wont support Adobe AIR anymore.
There is also another way to setup a project in Eclipse to use the AIR SDK without needing a plug-in
I will write a tutorial and let u know when i m done.

OTOH if you do not plan to build Titanuim application The Aptana studio 2 is pretty good. I use it as a plug-in for eclipse
here is the link
So you actually do not need to wait for my tutorial
Hope this could help

I found much easier way.
May friend once told me something about it.
We should just place AIR SDK in C:\air
then go to project and run cmd
then run this

Well if you are a command line dude that works also
I naturally tend to use an IDE.
Specially when packaging AIR applications i just cant remember in which order to put the arguments.
With Aptana is quiet easy. But if it works for you go ahead.
