I'm using the Linux Flex SDK and am able compile into an SWF file that runs with the flashplugin app found in the branch that I've built but I would like to compile into an Air application that I can install using the installer.
Unfortunately all of the instructions that I've been able to find use Builder but Adobe has decided to discontinue that application on Linux. The Flex documentation says to use amxmlc to do this but the output is the same as mxmlc. I don't own Windows or OSX so Builder is out of the question, there must be a way to do this at the command line in Linux I just can't find it. Or I might just be missing something.
Can anyone recommend a howto that explains how to do this? Thanks in advance.
Turns out that the AIR SDK for Linux is not bundled with the SVN Flex SDK, there's 5GB of everything else, but not that. Once I downloaded it and uncompressed it over top of the existing branch frameworks/apps I at least get the correct adt/adl.
However, I still can't find the instructions to create a .air file. The docs say to just run
$ amxmlc file.mxml
that runs fine, and compiler output shows that the air-config.xml file gets loaded, but I'm failing to see how it differs from just compiling it using mxmlc.
I would really like to start developing AIR apps that I can install using the AIR installer and better still package into an apk to use on my android.
