Flash Platform

OpenSource AVM… LightSpark

Lightspark is a modern, free, open-source flash player implementation. Lightspark features:

  • JIT compilation of Actionscript to native x86 bytecode using LLVM
  • Hardware accelerated rendering using OpenGL Shaders (GLSL)
  • Very good and robust support for current-generation Actionscript 3
  • A new, clean, codebase exploiting multithreading and optimized for modern hardware. Designed from scratch after the official Flash documentation was released.

Now, unfortunately this project doesn’t have the necessary momentum at the moment to be considered a serious project by itself, however there does seem to be a lot of value in some of the documentation work they have done which could provide value to a possible future coordinated attempt to have a AVM (ActionScript Virtual Machine) in on the hands of Open Source…
