Some things in the post above are incorrect.aidanmack wrote:Hi,
So this is a little bit of an issue for me and my rasberry pi...
None of the browsers for Debian “squeeze” support HTML5, and there is currently no Flash support, so unfortunately you cannot watch YouTube videos; we’re investigating HTML5 solutions.
Lua would be nice? any ideas on that one?
Im a flash/air dev by trade. Can I not do anything like that on the pi yet?
... So I need to make a stab at something like python then?
No Chromium is just a browser. The guts of Chromium is the v8 js engine which can be installed as a library.aidanmack wrote:Thanks for the reply,
Linux has good support for java script? But in order to use java script I would need Chromium running in wheezy?
Or do you think something like the Titanium frame work might run on squeeze?
Yep - Lua5.1 is available. Just install it using apt-get as root. There are also quite a lot of libraries available including some to do GUI apps.Lua might be worth a look. Ive done alot with that in the coronasdk ... I wonder if theirs an sdk that will allow you to run standalone lua programs that would work on pi..
This is a strange thing to do in a browser. Wouldn't it be better to build a standalone application?aidanmack wrote:Maybe an interactive photo gallery as a first project. users can see an array of photos stored on a sd card. press tabs of them to enlarge... something like that.
Oh it wouldn't have to be in a browser. Well not with the browser framework around it anyway. It would behave like it was a native app.bredman wrote:This is a strange thing to do in a browser.

I understand you may want to learn some web technologies, so this may be a valid reason, but you have picked a very difficult project to run from a browser. Also, the performance from within a browser will be terrible, so this is only useful as a learning exercise.
To put the facts straight, Adobe is no longer supporting Flash in the browser on mobile platforms.Heater wrote:Adobe has already announced that it is not supporting FLASh and action script for mobile devices anymore. It's a dead end, typical of closed proprietary solutions.
Wont work, compiled against a completly different glibc treeMarkCaz wrote:Hello, I realise this is going to be a stupid question (am completely new to RP), but I saw an Arm6 version of flash was available http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthr ... ?t=1504968 (and air 2.7 supposedly also works).
I realise this is an android APK but is there any chance it might ever work on the RP or am I seriously barking up the wrong tree here ?
