Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-34911) Flex Installer on mac not completing.
Date Wed, 22 Jul 2015 10:54:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-34911?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14636713#comment-14636713

Justin Mills commented on FLEX-34911:

to clarify you need to install node to have access to the npm installer.  It's a bit strange
that someone has packaged it as a npm and I am unsure if some parts are missing with this
approach, but maybe it's worth a go.

I found a tutorial on installing node so you can understand a bit more about that.  Node is
backend js but the npm package manager that comes with it seems to be used sometimes for not
particularly node related projects, kind of like macports.

the package you want to try is on github here.

but that's kind of irrelevant, once npm is setup you just type from terminal 

    npm --loglevel verbose install node-flex

( since it's quite big it's nice to have verbose on so you can see whats happening. loglevels
are explained by no. 6 here: http://blog.izs.me/post/1675072029/10-cool-things-you-probably-didnt-realize-npm

I know Apache Flex is about flex, but I am worried that the code that is not currently downloading
is flex specific and I just want to setup an as3 AIR starling robot legs project that does
not use Flex itself.  It would be nice if there were packages for as3 users like me.

I think adobe can do better than sourceforge! After all Haxe manages to host downloads itself,
why are Adobe putting stuff on sourceforge?
