Flex: Flare ForceDirected demo updated for AIR

I have gone back and updated my force directed graph demo to work with Flex 4 and Flare. I am quite pleased with the result. It runs on the AIR runtime.

You can download the executable here.

You can download the source code here.

I am pleased to say that the last version of Flare seem to have fixed all of the issues from when I last looked at this in 2008 (over three years ago..can you believe it).

The demo displays a sample graphML description taken from my Social Graph Browser

It’s not perfect but there are some interesting features of the code to note:

It shouldn’t be too hard to convert this back into a Flex web application as the code is totally self contained. My original plan was to use Flare to implement the graph in my Social Graph Browser application but the original version of the library had too many problems to do that so I let it drop at the time.

My current plan is to convert what Flare demos I have into AIR applications as I go along.

I hope this proves useful.
