BigPond V8 Supercars 2007

Category: Showcase

James Mc Parlane has created a rich live view on the BigPond V8 Supercars 2007 site.

The application is written in JavaScript and uses Flash elements as a ‘dumb’ display terminal. This provides a simple and highly reactive coding environment coupled to lovely anti-aliasing and scaling via Flash. Each of the panels are detachable (and soon drag/swap-able) and can be made to detach, re-size and go full screen, so if you have multiple monitors, you can really have a good time :)

Why not go all flash on this one? What are they using javascript for?

Comment by Karl-Erik Rønsen — March 26, 2007

probably for the same reason i’ve had to look at alot of flash/javascript hybrids. Alots of clients like the animation and flair flash provides.. but for data handling and other non-graphics code, javascript is nice and maintainable.

Not to mention JavaScript can be modified on the fly. Flash cant.
