Hello World in Adobe AIR
Thursday, January 29th, 2009
To run through this quick tutorial, you will need the following installed:
Adobe AIR Runtime
Adobe AIR SDK properly setup in your Environment settings Path (for Windows)
A notepad application to edit the files
The Adobe AIR Runtime and SDK can be downloaded from Adobe's website. For further information on their installation and configuration please refer to their documentation as it is documented very well.
The Adobe AIR program structure has a very simple layout:
An XML file for your application configuration (for you Java gurus think of this as your Manifest). My very basic file for this, which is pretty self-explanatory was as follows:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<description>My description here</description>
<title>Whats up world?</title>
The only real important aspect of this file is that the initialWindow element actually refers to an html file that you must have provided with the application.
My example page (which I saved as index.html) was as follows:
<title>Yo whats up</title>
I got here!
When you have these two files set and ready to roll, simple go to your command line, and run the following command:
You should then see your application!
I haven't made it any further then that yet, but once I get into some more in-depth topics I'll keep ya'll updated!
AIRin' Tom Out.
