Package your Air 2 Applications for Ubuntu

Update: UbuntuPackager v0.2 is out take a look here
When we develop AIR applications, we see that is very easy to deploy the same application in windows, mac and linux, the only thing we have to do is run the air application. But when air 2 was introduced there were some new features these includes the ability to launch or interact to native process.

You can build native installers with the comand line is not hard but some time you can mess up your installer with wrong arguments and other things. Inspired in Serge Jespers Package Assistant Pro, i develop a litle air 2 application that generates a native .deb installer for debian based systems and an .apk for android phones with air 2.5 installed. 

So watch the demo:

Some considerations:
  • This software is still in alpha, but for the most of the cases works.
  • It actually work with pkcs12 certificates.
  • It works with android too, but i use the -debug flag to it can work in emulators and devices (Sorry but in Peru there is no phone with android 2.2)
Here is the file

Tell me if this works for you.
Sorry for my english is not my native language.

  1. I was not able to test it because it has been compiled for AMD 64 bit architectures. Have you got a 32bit version of the UbuntuPackager?
    Many Thanks
