Robotlegs 2: Press release

Robotlegs 2 brings you...

1. 'Have it your way' context builder

Add maps and framework features by composition with the Robotlegs context-builder:

You want a command map, mediators, signal-driven state changes and anchovies, hold the view injection?

No problem!

2. TypeMatcher mappings for more OO-goodness

Want to map a mediator for everything that implements ISpaceship interface, except for in your menus and tutorials?

No problem!

3. Guards and Hooks: get-outs and processing hooks

A flexible but consistent approach allows pre and post framework-action processing.

Apply guards to any map to include or exclude special conditions.

Use hooks to log object creation, to perform just-in-time configuration, to implement skinning and view controllers - learn it once, use it everywhere!

4. Where am I? Better flow control with rule sets and command flows

Create 'rule sets' that represent defined states of your app's mappings.

Use command flows to quickly define complex paths through connected states.

5. Talk to your Robotlegs in human or computer

DSL or MXML - whether you like your configuration natural or <>, Robotlegs 2 is ready to listen.

6. It's all modular

Every context is both a module and a shell, and new 'soft mapping' configuration allows your swf to play alone or with others without recompiling.

7. The benefit of hindsight, from the beginning

Template projects in four new Robotlegs flavours, Original, Light, Rapid and Smart-Views, help you get up and running with the right Robotlegs mix for your project.

8. InspectorGadget: Like a really smart co-worker, but with better taste in music

Code introspection and developer insights, especially for Robotlegs.

InspectorGadget can help you find mistakes, suggest optimizations and tell you what's going on inside your app at any given moment, as well as over the running time.


Optimizations, easier connection points for utilities, a bunch of handy injectable nuts and bolts, a Robotlegs-specific testing kit and assorted other whistles and bells, but - most importantly - the same Robotlegs taste you've grown to love.


Patience is a virtue. Register here for Alpha and Beta releases - Robotlegs 2 will be hitting your codebase before the year end.

    Robotlegs it's going to be more then a framework. I believe that it will lead to a new way of development.
    Great work so far ;) Keep going.

    I agree with Krasimir’s statement: “Robotlegs it's going to be more than a framework.
    I believe that it will lead to a new way of development.”

    Great work, robotlegs-team! Thank you.
