I suggest they change the name to Giada. Hubba hubba! Who's with me?

I've been trying to look this up but have no concrete info. Perhaps Giandula is the evolution for SprotuCore, not really a parallel framework to compete with each other. Or perhaps Giandula allows for Progressive Enhancement so that older browsers and/or browsers that can't have JS enabled can have basic functionality. (Those are speculative for the sake of discussion, not statements of fact)

I think the main problem with the whole notion that there will soon be a GUI based HTML5 animation tool is dependent on someone being able to figure out how to do it. These frameworks that we have an ever increasing selection of just don't lend themselves to the easy drag and drop timeline event, layers, vectors model that is Flash.

It is going to take a completely different approach to produce a designer friendly tool. Programmers don't really mind having to code and debug hundreds of lines of code to get a desired result but in order for a designer to make money with it, it needs to be a lot more like a rapid application development environment similar to flash.

I think we're basically on the same page here, just focusing on different distances. i don't see any of these clever frameworks replacing Flash or other parts of the web today. These are just the start, but they show a very bright future for the future of the internet for developers and users.

I do have two caveats. One, HTML5's Canvas and CSS Animations for ads and other annoying things that can't easily be turned off like with Flash blockers. Animated GIFs can still be annoying so this will present an issue at some point that will require very intelligent blockers compared to what we have now. Two, WebGL is great but giving a DOM access to HW scares me just a bit.

Love the food combo - hazelnut and dark chocolate. Very popular in Torino, where they lay a local claim to it. Combine with cappuccino and java (a bit redundant) and you've got yourself a serious food high.

If that's the flavor combo, why not just call it Nutella?

Oh, wait... I think that's being used

Its different because things are changing. Steve Jobs focus is not on Flash itself, Jobs focus is on how everything is changing and Flash does not suit the new environment.

Flash worked perfectly fine as long as most of the computer industry was using desktops with ample system resources and plugged into unlimited power supplies.

The industry is shifting to mobile devices that have extremely limited system resources and extremely limited power supplies. These devices require lightweight and energy efficient software. Flash ain't it.


  • Seeing as every mobile platform does or soon will fully support HTML5 and no phone currently fully run Flash.
  • Every major website is developing a "Flashless" version with pure H.264 video delivery.
  • Adobe keeps pushing back Flash for the mobile device.
  • We are seeing how it plays out.

I did read what you posted, and you posted Adobe against everybody else. It simply, isn't true. Period.

As stated, adobe is behind on developing a player for mobile. Their player currently, isn't because of obvious reasons (though flash lite is on some already), soI'm not sure exactly what you are arguing about

I'm trying to point out the spouting nonsense, and the fact that certain opinions seem to tell the whole storey. If you want to speak authoritatively on the subject, it's good to look at the whole storey and scope out what's happening on both sides.

Yes, it's technically true that Adobe is part of the team working very hard on HTML5, but you fail to mention that they are at the same time, working to push the HTML5 group away from using or developing the "Canvas" element which is the part of HTML5 that would basically replace Flash animations on the web.

"Adobe is working hard on making sure that Flash animations don't get replaced by HTML5's Canvas element." (and thus make the Flash plugin obsolete), would be the closest to a true and accurate statement.

Nonsense. Just because someone reported it as some kind of fact, doesn't make it so. Oh wait, look at! Flash CS5 exports to html canvas? Say it ain't so...

oh. Here, read.
http://blogs.adobe.com/jnack/2010/02...ing_html5.html

specifically:
Quote:
Addendum: Here are some comments from an HTML WG member, Shelley Powers, who is not affiliated with Adobe:

I'm a member of the HTML WG, but I'm not speaking for the HTML WG, or W3C. I'm only expressing my opinion, and what I know to be facts. I'm also not an employee of Google, Adobe, Apple, Microsoft, or any other company (I'm a writer, for O'Reilly).

There is no truth to this rumor. The posting here is inaccurate. Grossly inaccurate I would add.

This was an issue that has been under discussion, off and on, on the publicly accessible HTML WG for months. It has to do with scope and charter, not the specifications themselves. The Adobe representative to the HTML WG registered his concerns about the fact that the HTML WG is working on specifications that push, or exceed the group's charter. This includes Microdata, RDFa-in-HTML, and the 2D Canvas API.

Adobe is not blocking any specification. There are dozens of issues that are "blocking" HTML5, if you want to use that term, of which I'm responsible for many at this time. Technically the HTML5 specification can't advance to Last Call status until these issues are resolved. However, the W3C management can override my issues, and the issues of any individual or company. No one company can block the advancement of any specification without the concurrence of the W3C leadership.

All of these issues are based on improving all of the specifications, including HTML5 and Canvas. it's unfortunate that the HTML5 editor, who is also the Google representative to the HTML WG introduced such wild, and unfounded speculation, causing harm not only to the Adobe representative, but distracting all of us from the work of finishing the HTML5 and other specifications.

I would hope that people would seek to get confirmation before posting unfounded accusations.

The spewing is tiresome.

No one has a crystal ball. I don't know where any of these technologies will go. I suspect it will take far more than Steve Jobs to kill flash though. It's possible, and as I said, a lot rests on adobe's ability to deliver, and soon.

Floppy disks were dead long before Mr. Jobs said so. It was a good call. You can't compare a legacy technology just about dead with something that currently holds 97% of users still, regardless of how much you dislike flash.

I imagine Apple would do the same as its done with Flash access to HW. Use an API with security in place. So the DOM doesn't have direct access and has to go through the OS to the hardware.

I challenge anyone here to go to a party tonight and say "I work with Gianduia!". Good luck getting past the blank looks and "What's that?" comments.

Anyway it's not a good name, and surprising Apple would use it at all. Then again this is the Apple that gave us Dylan... a language unfortunately named after someone with his own language.

Ok, adobe is NOT working flash by itself, they are working many applications and platforms that include HTML5. So, what are you talking about just flash by itself.

gah.

This, is the nonsense, I see spouted. It's tiresome.

There are plenty, of things to criticize adobe for. But we need to get the straight and accurate to have a decent conversation right?

No it isn't. H.264 is an alternative to Flash, although limited to the video playback functions of Flash. Similarly, this JS framework is an alternative to another use of Flash: RIAs.

An alternative doesn't necessarily imply a full drop in replacement with all of the exact same features, and the fact that you might jump to that conclusion when reading the headline is your problem, not AIs. That's why there is text to read after the headline which clarifies the various uses of Flash and how each one is being taken down by different technologies.

Flash is suposed to be a one-size-fits-all solution to everything. But the web is a collection of tools that work together: HTML for semantic presentation, CSS for styling, JavaScript for programability and interaction. Flash is an alternative to the web that rolls everything into a binary blob you have to wait to download.

The only problem with this type of thinking it that it totally ignores the history of the computer industry. No technology is assured. Fortunes rise and fall, empires are built and destroyed. Nothing is guaranteed. There is nothing inherent in Flash that it cannot be replaced.

wrong. HTML5 as a player of the H.264, is the alternative, not H.264. Flash is the container that plays H.264, and has had support for playing H.264 for a long time. It enables the ability to share video files and offer a different player.

And wrong again that flash is to be a one size fits all. You need to have experience in developing flash, AND CSS js etc, to know this.

Who else other than Adobe is guiding the development work for Flash? Flash is not an open platform. The other platforms Adobe is working on are open and not controlled by any one company.

H.264 is a codec, Flash is a container. H.264 can be played within any container that will support it.

It's pretty obvious you are playing fast and loose with the facts here and that you have a definite agenda so I'm not going to respond after this. It's sunny outside anyway so why anyone would want to stay in and argue with trolls in the dark is beyond me.

It's your statement that is total nonsense here. The quote you reference is just some guy (with an agenda also), who says that Adobe isn't sabotaging or delaying HTML5 canvas discussions. But it's in response to someone else who says they are. It's a much more involved and complicated situation that that of course, but they are both just "things that people said," and not necessarily facts. It's idiotic to take the word of one person and decry the word of another without any factual basis either way.

When you look at the actual facts and what actually has been happening, *most* people involved in the discussions and following them seem to believe that Adobe is delaying the spec. The canvas part of the spec is in fact delayed, and again *most* people ascribe this to Adobe's actions and influence on the working group. I tend to take the word of tech columnists like John Gruber and numerous others around the web rather than an anonymous troll on a forum. Adobe clearly has an obvious and very large interest in holding the canvas spec back, they are on the working group, and the spec is in fact being held back for lack of agreement, but also lack of discussion. The balance of the facts agree with the interpretation that Adobe might be playing games here. At least that's the way it looks at the moment.

The second part of your statement is just a lie. The page you reference doesn't even have the word "export" on the entire page so I don't see how it can be used as support for the statement that Adobe CS5 supports exporting to canvas from Flash.

While Adobe does support some elements of canvas with it's products, to directly imply as you have done, that you can load up your animation in Flash and click a button to export it as a canvas element that you can plop into an HTML5 page the same way as you can drop in a flash element is just false.

It will take a good deal of time and effort to get (from soonest to longest) dominate modern browser marketshare, solid frameworks built, and rich dev tools before that will happen. Or maybe I'm reading too much into that adverb.

It's veeeery simple. Adobe, supports HTML5. Very much so. They would be silly, not to.

They also, have a product called flash. And you, like everyone else, continue to pit flash vs html5. At some point, people will begin to wake up, and realize, this flash vs html5, is the stuff of pap fed to people who don't truly understand web development.

you could go on to say that any technology, any of it, can be replaced. Should we clap our hands at this explosive revelation?

This mere fact isn't a slam dunk that it -will- get replaced. Technologies that continue to present great ROI, and developers love working within the development platforms, will continue to win. I have no crystal ball so I couldn't tell you which they'll be in 5 years. It'll be an interesting 5 years though.

Or maybe I'm reading too much into that adverb.

Yes all technology gets replaced. Nothing lasts. Flash is dragging around 10 year old code. You are not going to be successful on the new mobile device market carrying around 10 year old legacy crap.

Adobe should have rehauled the old Flash into a brand new Flash. That's in effect what they are trying to do. But they are taking too long. No one is going to sit around waiting for them.

This mere fact isn't a slam dunk that it -will- get replaced. Technologies that continue to present great ROI, and developers love working within the development platforms, will continue to win. I have no crystal ball so I couldn't tell you which they'll be in 5 years. It'll be an interesting 5 years though.

actually, many are. Almost every interactive shop I'm aware of, is. That's why I said, it all rests on adobe now. If they blow this, well, we could very well see a slow demise of flash.

Personally, I'll use whatever technology, that makes sense, makes me money, and clients continue to ask for. If apple comes up with a flash killer, and it's awesome, great I say.

I just find a lot of mistruths are thrown around, and regardless of what your personal likes are, it serves no real purpose. If flash truly sucks, and deserves to be killed, well, it'll be a slow messy death is about all I can say

They are not waiting for Flash to improve they just not have found it necessary to replace yet. Once they find it in their interest to change they will.

If they want to build a mobile website (which is becoming more necessary as smart phones sales are expected to match computer sales soon) Flash is not an option at all.

I don't have anything personally against Flash. But it is clear that its old technology from a different time and is not properly suited for what is happening today and in the near future.

On a separate note: your lemming like attitude, with use of terms like "His Steveness" and the (still popular with the mindless), "fanbois" , show your incredible lack of maturity in addition to your lack of facts.
Oh well. One more for the ignore.

Wrong. You talk as though apple owns 90% of the mobile space. They don't, well yet, but they're certainly giving it a real go. One of the things I've noticed, is a very strong interest lately in android, which will have flash very shortly, as well as likely all the other mobile platforms. So apple will be the only one without. Of course, it'll remain to be seen, how well that plays out. From what I saw, if I were a betting man, I'd say flash has far more a chance than you think. This isn't a bias, it's just an observation, from someone who has been making a living in this industry for 15 odd years. We'll see I guess.

I don't have anything personally against Flash. But it is clear that its old technology from a different time and is not properly suited for what is happening today and in the near future.

Why because Steve told you so? How is it 'old technology', compared to html? And how is the new flash stuff, 'old technology'? If you're going to bash something, let's use clear examples rather than broad insinuations. As I said, there's lots to criticize, but these broad parrots of his "Steveness" does nothing for me. The very fact That SJ even posted a response regarding flash tells me the backlash was something to be concerned about. He doth protesteth too much?

Let's be clear, if flash went down, I'd be sad to see what I see as a great platform to develop in. But I'll use whatever is good, and does the job effectively. Most of my work tends to be in PHP. I'm totally down with HTML5 coming in. WHy wouldn't I be. But when it comes to developing a great interactive experience, it's tough to beat flash as an authoring platform to develop in, and it's going to take a whole lot more than yippee we can make things move in canvas to pull developers away from flash I can assure you.

I find it interesting SJ even found it necessary to post his "thoughts", which are well known to be inaccurate. The very fact the he, and his followers continue to parrot them as fact, is proof positive that this whole thing stinks top down. Dislike flash all you like, but let's get real here.

I've loved the apple platform for a long time. I was one of the few web developers nearly a decade ago that switched over, but Jaguar turned my head. I continue to like apple and it's platforms. But this nonsense, has left a bad taste in my mouth, and certainly many who know the real deal on things.

Why bother mouthing off like that in public, I mean, really. I was surprised and disappointed in SJ when I saw that. Personally, I thought he should have just kept it to himself. Flash is gonna die anyway right? right???
