AMFPHP, method table automation

go site Christophe Herreman created a very nice PHP class in order to automate the method table creation inside your AMFPHP class.
In this way, using his class, you can instead of writing every time you create a new PHP class, or just editing it, the code like:

$this->methodTable = array( "getParkTypes" => array( "description" => "Returns list of park types", "access" => "remote", "arguments" => array ("arg1") ), "getParksList" => array( "description" => "Shows list of parks given a park type", "access" => "remote", "arguments" => array ("parkType") ), "getParkDetails" => array( "description" => "Return details on a park give the parkname", "access" => "remote", "arguments" => array ("parkName") ) );

You can just use this code:

require_once("MethodTable.php"); $this->methodTable = MethodTable::create($this);

The only problem for most of us is that this requires PHP5

Idea for SEPY 2.0?

I’m in the way to release a new updated version ( will be 1.0.5.3 ) with some minor fix and some other feature added.
Current deveopement of SEPY will terminate in a few weeks, this is because the code which I stared to write more than one year ago has become too much dirty and new feature i would like to add are quite impossible to integrate in the current developement status.
For this reason I’m planning to write a new version 2.0 from scratch.
I hope to begin for the xmas holidays or for the first days of the next year.
What i would like to ask to you is to follow url send me all the feature request, all the ideas you have about your ideal editor, and send to me. Also ideas for a new logo will be really appreciated!

Gmail Drive!

I was told this freeware shell extension by one of my co-workers, and it works great. OS support is for all Windows platforms.
It creates a virtual filesystem on top of your Google account and enables to save and retrieve files stored on your GMail directly from inside Windows Explorer. It literally adds a new drive to your computer under the My Computer folder, where you can create new folders, copy and drag’n’drop files to.
One of the things that I can suggest is; using file type icons would be better instead of system file icons in the virtual directories.
More details are here.

FireFox 1.0 is here!

Finally after a long period being in developement, Firefox 1.0 was announced!
It’s a long time this is my default and only browser… I cannot imagine to surf the internet without it actually.
I want to say I have nothing against Microsoft, but the comparison between Internet Explorer and Firefox it’s really embarrassing.

MTASC : Motion-Twin ActionScript 2 Compiler

MTASC is the first ActionScript 2 Open Source free compiler.
Right now it’s a command line compiler which get .as files as input and will generate .swf files as output. This means it can be easily integrated into any editor which can run command line tools (such as sepy).
It seems MTASC is more and more quickly than the internal flash compiler:
MTASC is based on the best compiler technology available (namely the OCaml programming language) and thus provide a great speed improvement over MMC (compile around 100 classes in less than 5 seconds).
Since the source code is made more concise by using good technology, it is more easy to maintain and implement robust and proven typing algorithms. The feedback we get from Open Source community help us fixes the bug quickly.

It’s made using OCaml as programming language.
The mailing list is available at this link: http://lists.motion-twin.com/mailman/listinfo/mtasc
