Flash SEO: graceful degradation to add meaning and structure

Monday, October 20th, 2008

Flash sites are traditionally less searchable by Google than plain HTML sites. Now that Google supports the indexing of Flash files, you might think that’s that. You just make your shiny site in Flash and never have to worry about being searchable. Still, something is missing: meaning and structure. Both of them are present in regular HTML sites, but not in Flash. So, how exactly can we make Flash sites just as searchable as HTML sites?

FiTC Amsterdam 2008

Tuesday, February 26th, 2008

Just came back from Flash In The Can 2008 in Amsterdam, a conference about all things Flash. This was the first FiTC held in Europe, and as all my Flash heroes from around the world were there, and as it’s literally a 10 minutes bike drive from my home to the conference, I had to go. The lectures were generally very inspiring and my hands itch to start coding the whole night. Let’s sum up my thoughts about the presentations I attended.

Monoslideshow

I’ve just finished Monoslideshow, the new ultra customizable Flash image viewer for web designers and developers. It took some time, but finally it’s online: www.monoslideshow.com

Monoslideshow uses an .XML file to read out preferences about how it looks and behaves. A screenshot of Monoslideshow in its default looks:

I couldn’t find a decent free obfuscator to use on macOSX, so I made my own. The obfuscator is written in JAVA (so it’s platform independent), and it uses Flasm at its core.

Using Textmate, MTASC and XTrace to build Flash projects in Mac OSX

Friday, July 14th, 2006

In this post I will describe my workflow for developing Flash projects without the use of the Adobe Flash IDE. This workflow isn’t suitable for every project. It’s mainly of use for those projects which only contain pure Actionscript code and make no use of components, objects in the library or non-scripted motion tweens. After following the instructions, you will be able to do the following:

  • Compile Actionscript .AS-files to a .SWF-file from within Textmate.
  • Preview .SWF-file from within Textmate.
  • Display error messages from within Textmate. You can click on these messages to quickly jump to the source of the error.
  • Display “trace” commands in a seperate window which automatically fades away after 30 seconds.
