Codegarden 08 - flash and umbraco

I’m back from Denmark and had an amazing week ! First with the retreat and then with codegarden08. For the people who couldn’t make it, you can download my flash and umbraco presentation below.



Presentation: download pdf

Most importing part of the presentation was the release of a new umbraco package. NibbleFX (flash express).

In short: Have an xml driven flash movie you would like to manage with umbraco? This package will do all the work for you, just upload your xml file and documenttypes, templates, xslt and macro’s get created automaticly, you can even import the content.

Check out this screencast ( of a beta version) if you want to see a demo.

    Hey, here’s your famous extension that really deserved the success enoucontered at Codegarden08. I told our Flash developer about it and he started to get very excited about the idea to put his stuff into Umbraco in an easy way! Well done then and it was great to meet you at Copenhagen btw. see ya!

    Hey Nibble,

    Any chance you’ll release the source for this one? It looks really interesting, but I have some ideas for improvements.

    Hi Hall,

    Sure that is possible, I would be interested to hear what improvements you have in mind.

    When do you have a “part 2″ of the Demo ready. I’m sooo curious on how this demo ended ;)

    I cannot get this to work, I am sure I am doing something wrong but not sure what, the previewed page is always blank (no xml whatsoever). I am using V4 Beta 2 if that makes any difference (tried it in Beta1 with same result recently).

    Any ideas? Is there anywhere to see a pre-installed working version so I can go through it just to double check I am doing nothing wrong?

    I made this package for v3, so I’ll need to update it to work in v4.

    and thank you for sharing your hard work.

    Is there a chance you’ll update NibbleFx to work in Umbraco 4?

  10. Tina on December 28th, 2009

    Hi! Just read about this package, any chance that it will be updated for v4 soon? :)

    Hi Nibble, how amazing, i have been searching high and low for something that will let me easily attach a backend to my flash apps. Having looked at the demo video I think what you have done is superb and fills a gap that most people need for flash apps.

    Are there any plans on updating the code for umbraco v4?

    Hope to hear back from you!

  12. Tim Geyssens on April 17th, 2010

    @Bhupi, yes will make an update once v4.1 is out.

  13. Teis on June 1st, 2010

    Supernice! Please don’t hesitate with the v4 version release.
    Can’t wait : )

    is there any plans to make the update work with 4.5 ? -
    are you currently working on the update and can we expect it any time soon or is the project on standby ?

  15. Rob on July 26th, 2011

    Hi Nibble

    I see there has not been much activity since Oct 2010.
    Any progress on a version that supports 4.5 ?

    We would support this project if it kicked off again.
