Use Gnash to run Flash movies inside an activity window and through Gnash extensions allow movies interact with the Sugar desktop.
Benefit to Sugar
Flash developers will be able to create content for activities with the same tools and skills they are creating today. This will make broader the range of content available as Sugar activities.
This needs only changes in Gnash.
How To Test
On a machine that can run Sugar on a Stick, try the following instructions:
- Also you can find and skeleton for a flash activity on these sources.
http://git.sugarlabs.org/projects/eatboom/repos/wadebs-clone This is also bundled at http://activities.sugarlabs.org/en-US/sugar/addon/4225
More activities will be available and more tools will be available to develop new ones.
Distros need to package the last version of Gnash (v9).
None necessary, revert to previous release behaviour.
Gnash has been added to the Sugar Platform, meaning that authors of educative content can use Flash tools to create activities for Sugar.
