¡Holla! Would anyone be interested in upgrading the TodoMVC example for Flight? It's currently on 1.3, but I think it would generally be nice to show some of the newer patterns.

@passy, @kmargaritis and I can take care of it towards the end of the week

Hey ya'll. Anyone around to answer some questions about Flight?
Brett Willemsen
@bzmwillemsen

So I'm looking to switch from a in-house framework to Flight, they're very similar except that Flight is obviously supported by many more developers. I had a question about attributes though.

In our in-house solution we define defaultAttributes as:

{ events: {
    'bob': 'blahblah',
    'bill': 'bloobloo' },
  selectors: {
    'anne': 'meepmeep',
    'ariel': 'moopmoop' },
  ...
}

as opposed to flight which suggest defining the defaultAttributes as:

{ 'bobEvent': 'blahblah',
  'billEvent': 'bloobloo',
  'anneSelector': 'meepmeep',
  'arielSelector': 'moopmoop',
  ...
}

We found that the Flight standard is very verbose. and results in a lot of repetition in our code. Is this really the best practice? We've thought about creating a mixin which will use 'selector.' for .select() but that seems really hacky and I would rather not have to do that.

Thoughts?

Hello Flight crew ... I have a general question, please. I'm not seeing a huge amount of development being pushed into the master flight repository on Github. I mean, there is activity, but it's no where close to something like, for instance, Bootstrap..
So here is my question: Is Flight going to remain a big part of Twitter, or is there there serious discussion of replacing it with another framework?

@gavinengel I was turned off from the project for the same reason. Not a ton of turials either.

Interesting @miguel-perez

@miguel-perez
So, I too, would like to hear the answer to @gavinengel’s question

@gavinengel
I am not even seeing a branch for version 2 in the Github repo, for instance
Oh sorry, 2 is the master
Anyway, I'll follow this gitter if anyone want to share thoughts. Regards

I had a general question about teardown. If my component doesnt bind anything to the document, and If I delete the root DOM node where this component is attached, do I still need to tear it down?

@dryajov
@sarasfox checkout https://github.com/dryajov/alicatejs its a good alternative to flight
sperovic
@sperovic
@dryajov not sure if u there but why would you steer people away from flight?

Hi folks - curious if there is a mechanism for using stateful urls with flight?
In particular I'd like to set the value of various forms according to GET params
Awal Garg
@awalgarg
Any internal devs here? I have been told flight doesn't keep source references to dom objects in event objects, and components don't have references to other components. I am curious about some consequences to this. Like how was sweeping away listeners of removed dom elements handled, etc. Any idea what part of the code should I be looking at?
Giuseppe
@giuseppeg
@awalGarg that is a good question
my guess is that $(node).remove() will remove all the listeners, but flight's internal registry
will still have a reference to them
however since the listeners where removed... if you fire an event on node the handler won't be executed

hey guys
its the project really off?
i am maintaining some legacy project in flight js
and thought there is movement in the library
but its a 1 year old repo
Giuseppe
@giuseppeg
@pixelgrid yep the development has stopped, twitter.com will eventually be rewritten in react. TweetDeck will probably stay on flight but the framework won't get any new features (it doesn't need any afterall)
the TweetDeck folks started to open source a few mixins at some point (called them toolbox)
@phuu was playing with redux also https://github.com/phuu/flight-redux-playground
Elton Kamami
@pixelgrid
@giuseppeg flight redux seems like a nice sideproject but i cant think of any reason anyone would go that route and not the actual react redux
Giuseppe
@giuseppeg
agreed

I like flightjs for its “simplicity”, I use it in conjunction with handlebars templates, how are you guys using it?
