After yesterday’s experimentation with Adobe Flex to build open source games on Ubuntu, I thought: obviously the next step is to make it really easy to package those games up. This is what Quickly is for, and Quickly is capable of having “templates”: ways of setting up new types of projects.
So, after a little bit of hacking, and some help from Didier Roche, I can now do this:
aquarius@giles: $ wget http://adamatomic.com/mode/Mode.swf --2011-01-03 17:38:54-- http://adamatomic.com/mode/Mode.swf Saving to: `Mode.swf' 2011-01-03 17:38:56 (201 KB/s) - `Mode.swf' saved [350603/350603] aquarius@giles: $ quickly create flash-game mode-by-adamatomic Mode.swf Creating project directory mode-by-adamatomic Creating bzr repository and commiting Launching your newly created project! Congratulations, your new project is set up! cd /home/aquarius/mode-by-adamatomic/ to edit the details. aquarius@giles: $ cd mode-by-adamatomic/ aquarius@giles: $ quickly package .......Ubuntu packaging created in debian/ ........................................ Ubuntu package has been successfully created in ../mode-by-adamatomic_0.1_all.deb
Hooray; package up a Flash game and make it available to Ubuntu users in two commands. Quickly really is great.
