Ways to grow from here
Some areas of improvement and development for SMAF in the near future:
- expanding contributor base
- HTML5 support!
- more application architecture and utility implementations
- more supporting service implementations
- more UI components
- exploring motion
- exploring mobile interaction
One of SMAF's biggest ambitions is supporting dual implementations of HTML5 and Flash. The plan is to develop the application template and framework in HTML5 as well, which could then render and handle the same SMXML UI composition as its Flash version. All UI could be repurposed for both Flash and HTML5, the only duplicate implementation to be made being the core application logic.
This idea may only be realized if the SMAF development team successfully grows with members of key expertise.
