Flash Player at the end of 2020 then Is it feasible to develop FLASH applications now?
What will reach EOL is the plugin for browsers, the Flash Player. Not Animate CC, not even the SWF format.
Animate CC will continue to receive support normally and will continue to being able of exporting:
- Desktop and mobile content using Adobe AIR (runtime) / AS3;
- Native HTML5 (Canvas) content for the web and even for mobile devices if you use some kind of wrapper, like Adobe PhoneGap or Cocoon.io;
- Native WebGL content.
Anyway, would you mind telling us what kind of app do you need?
You forgot the future of RIA on the web within 2/3 years, webassembly,
We are commissioned to create an interactive Flash Projector application with Animate CC, which is to be used locally on the customer's computer after completion. After Adobe's announcement regarding the Flash Player EOL (12/31/2020), the question arises whether the EOL will also affect Flash Prjoctor files. So the specific question is: Will Projector files continue to run locally as a desktop app after December 30, 2020? Thank you so much!
