The once only reserved for advanced game engines, the tilde-activated developer console has finally arrived to empower the Flex developer community. This tool significantly add power to Flex development.
Online PR News – 23-June-2010 – – Ahmedabad, India – May 22, 2010 – Last week the long-delayed release of the Tilde Developer Console open source project was finally announced. This comes as good news for the Flex developer community as the Flex developers would now be able to make use of the powerful Flex library of the PushButton Games Engine available in the release.
The release of the source code the public has created big waves as the enterprise Flex development will be significantly aided by the aforementioned games engine. The console is stated to be the most important tool for a Flex developer as it would help in saving huge amounts of time in testing and would definitely be quickly accepted by the users.
There are two key tools in the released Flex development package – a). The Flex Developer Console, and b). The Client-Side Trace Logging. The Developer Console is a versatile “tilde-activated” console which is similar to those found on various 3D game engines. The console helps the Flex developers with a tab-based command auto completion with a powerful ability to register custom call-back commands at the run-time. The console helps in creating and working with stats and graphs of the enterprise data easily. The Client-Side Trace Logging is the logging system of the package wherein log statements are stored. Multiple logging-levels are supported and entries are color-coded by severity in the console.
The full credit of the Tilde Console goes to the fine work of the Flex developers who have worked tirelessly in building and exclusive platform using the code from the PushButton Games Engine. This console is generating the excitement due to the fact that now a Flex developer would be really able to use the powerful game engines to build state-of-the-art RIAs through Flex development. The performance of the Flex applications will rise up multiple folds which would result in more dramatic and enthralling effects experienced by the user. The Flex developers would be incredulously pleased to work with a professionally built code for Flex development which is not only readable and clever, but also elegant and easy to follow.
The PushButton team should be deservedly commended for making their excellent work freely available for the Flex development community. And for a novice Flex developer it is highly recommended to study this console project so as to learn how to write well-optimized ActionScript code.
