Abstract
An implementation to convert one of Adobes Flash file-format (xfl) to HTML5 has been created. The problems that need to be solved for completion of this converter are. What programming language should be used that is suitable for the application and locating some form of documentation of the file-format xfl. Javascript was chosen for implementation, but a usable documentation of xfl was not to be found. The lack of documentation, the lack of time and the huge amount of code to be processed were three of the main reasons for why the product could not be finished and all pictures tested not correctly converted. Adobes application Flash is losing more and more ground to HTML5. Apple does not allow Flash on their most popular products and were... (More)
An implementation to convert one of Adobes Flash file-format (xfl) to HTML5 has been created. The problems that need to be solved for completion of this converter are. What programming language should be used that is suitable for the application and locating some form of documentation of the file-format xfl. Javascript was chosen for implementation, but a usable documentation of xfl was not to be found. The lack of documentation, the lack of time and the huge amount of code to be processed were three of the main reasons for why the product could not be finished and all pictures tested not correctly converted. Adobes application Flash is losing more and more ground to HTML5. Apple does not allow Flash on their most popular products and were one of the most persuasive parts towards the creation and development of HTML5. A product that implements a conversion of Flash formats to HTML5 is likely to be needed in the near future. Because it already exist a few products that converts Flash older file-formats it was chosen in this thesis to convert the newest Flash file-format xfl. A picture of the xfl-format is drawn in Flash CS5 and is later drawn on a website with HTML5-canvas objects. This thesis contains information about the how xfl operates, different nodes that need interpret for conversion and how xfl manages its coordinate system.
This thesis could give valuable information of how a future product which converts xfl file-format should be implemented. (Less)
