I followed the installation instruction from the blueprint labs page and eclipse returned an error message stating that it was unable to find the download site. I then tried the url on the browser and it gave back the same error.
Is the site down or am I missing something?
I am not sure why you are having this problem. The download site is up. Please try again, and let us know if you are still having problems!
Also, the current version of Blueprint is only available for the Mac. You will not be able to install Blueprint on any other OS.
Thanks for your interest!
You cannot navigate to the download URL directly and install Blueprint from a broser. You have to use Flex Builder to install the plugin. When you provide Flex Builder with the download URL, it will look for a specific file (site.xml) that is hosted in that directory.
When you put http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/blueprint/ in the url box of a browser it looks for a file named index.html, and such file does not exist.
You're absolutely right. It must be something with my eclipse instalation
that renders it incapable of reaching the update site. If I append site.xml
in a browser windows it show the xml file, so the site is in fact live.
Sorry for that. I think I'll wait for the news on Flash Builder support next
