Petition to open source Flash spec

Adobe is going to stop distributing and updating Flash playerThat 's ok.

However, Flash is an important piece of Internet history and killing Flash means future can not access the past. Games, experiments and websites would be forgotten.

Open sourcing Flash spec would like a good solution to keep Flash projects alive safely for archive reasons. Do not know how, but that's the beauty of open source: you never know what will come up after you go open source! Way to convert swf / fla to HTML5 / canvas / webgl / webassembly, or some might write a standalone player for it. Another type would like to have a separate browser. We're not saying flash player should be preserved as is.

Weible that there are licenced components you can not release. Simply leave them out with a note explain what was removed. We will either bypass them, or replace them with open source alternatives.

Open source Flash specification petition

Adobe has announced that it will stop distributing and updating Flash player by 2020,it does not matter.

However, Flash is an important part of Internet history, its demise means that our future generations will not be able to understand the past information. Games, trials and websites will be forgotten.

The open source Flash specification will be a good solution for saving Flash project security archives. I do not know why, but this is the charm of open source: you will never know what happens after the open source! There may be a way to convert swf / fla to HTML5 / canvas / webgl / webassembly, or write a separate player for it. There may also be a separate browser for Flash. So, we are not saying that the Flash player should be kept as it is.

We also understand that the license-restricted component is not available as an open source. For this question, just attach a note explaining why it was removed. We can choose to bypass them, or use open source solutions to replace them.

We can Star this warehouse to sign in this petition signed, also welcomed the Pull requests to add some excellent Flash project link or open source Flash specification reasons.

The petition will be delivered to Adobe.

In the GitHub repository, the initiator also lists several Flash projects that should be saved, such asFlyguy,DICEWARSwithChat Noir(Trap the cat) and so on.

In fact, there are already some projects to save Flash, the problem is due to the Flash standard closed source, these projects are not complete. The sponsor lists the following items & mdash; & mdash;Gnash,Lightspark,ShumwaywithSWF specsThe

Think of Flash into a full memory of the programmer to kill, do not hurry to GitHub look at the project to a Star it.

Everyone on how to look, is focused on the development of existing open source Flash player to achieve, for example (Https://github.com/mozilla/shumway,Https://github.com/lightspark/lightspark), Or petition open source Flash specification, or you have other views, welcome to actively discuss ~
