This is a 2010-to-2013 archive of toki-woki.net. Here's how it looks now.

Weecast Player

During the last couple of months I've been working on a free AIR app for a French community-based site called Weecast. Its purpose is to allow users to submit and/or buy screencasts about your favorite apps and languages (mostly Adobe's and Microsoft's, but also 3D ones', OS's and more).

Introducing the Weecast Player!

The app allows you to browse your videos, watch them (4 view modes), search for more, drop comments and stars... I think that's called an RIA, right? There's also an offline mode, so you can access all your stuff anytime.

All of this is made in Flex+AIR. The visual identity was made by Weecast ; thanks for the PNGs, folks!

By the way, some parts of it are actually OpenSource, including:

If you don't know Weecast yet I highly recommend you go visit their site, grab an account and the player, enjoy free videos, and then buy some! Now if you don't understand French... Well, learn it!

Boks–A Visual Grid Editor

Introducing Boks, my latest and most ambitious AIR app to this day!

Do you design web pages? Do you write HTML and CSS? Ever heard about the Grid System and Blueprint CSS? Thought it was a pain to implement? Think again, fool!

Boks is some kind of WYSIWYG to help you setup a grid and baseline rhythm, build and fill your layout and export all this to HTML and CSS in no time.

Got your own CSS style already? No problemo, Boks can use them and eventually merge and compress them within a single "screen.css". Your styles use images? Simply point to your asset directory and it will be included too! Afraid of breaking the baseline rhythm with you randomly sized images? Just select the "Add JS to fix baselines" option and you're good to go!

Enough. Just go grab it (or just have a look at the lovely screenshots) and send feedback!

Apr 01, 2009: Update! I've done some wacky video screencasts that can help you understand everything about Boks, go and have a look! Yes, the sound is not perfect.

FFFFOUND AS3 API

I recently released FFFFOUND Desktop, this AIR app uses a home-made API that I'm open sourcing today. The code is hosted on Google Code and is available via SVN, I also uploaded a zip archive if you prefer.

You'll find the (asdocs) docs in the repository and in the archive.

By the way, I love feedback. If you use it: please share!

Also, if you need examples on how to use it, ask. I think the sources are self-explanatory but I might be wrong.

A few important things (also posted on the project's page):

  • For now, this API will only work in AIR projects because ffffound.com's crossdomain.xml is too restrictive. I've contacted them but at this time they don't want to change it.
  • The API relies on FFFFOUND's RSS feeds but also on the site's pages' HTML, so some functionalities might break at any time without warning. Use with caution.

Watch the comments for any update or news!

FFFFOUND Desktop


Finally a new AIR app! It's called FFFFOUND Desktop and if you like FFFFOUND you'll love it.

More info on the projet's page, as usual.

Just like the other AIR apps, it uses some home-brewed open-source utility classes, some of which have been updated for this project, go play with'em!

Shrink O’Matic

Here is Shrink O'Matic, my new AIR application!

Simply drag and drop images on it and they'll be resized as you wish.

More info on the project page...

I've also set up a new projects' page listing AIR apps and more.

Concerning the source code, it's not available but you can find parts of it in a brand new Google Code project where I've added (and I'll keep on adding) classes I use.

WebKut – AIR Web Screenshot Tool

WebKut logo

Introducing WebKut, my first useful AIR application! Basically this is a screenshot tool aimed at web pages. But you'll find more info on the project page. Tell me what you think!

[Update] Note: As lots of folks reported, "kut" means "vagina" in Dutch. I didn't know it back then but now I do, and -- as this project is old and will probably never be updated -- I won't change anything. From now on I will remove any comment about this, since it doesn't add anything interesting to the discussion.
