Blog Strip / Power of Flex

04 May 2007

So I wanted to add a list of recent blog posts to the home page of my website. I searched for about an hour for some javascript snippet to do a nice ajax style grab of my feed and display it. An entire hour I searched before I realized I'm a flex developer. I spent the next 15 minutes throwing together a quick prototype, and another 45 minutes tweaking it. In less time than I spent searching for a premade solution, I wrote my own.

Source, example, etc can be found here:

I am constantly amazed at how easy Flex makes some things.
