AMF library for NodeJS

branch: master
README.md

NO LONGER MAINTAINED

You're recommended to use an active fork of this library instead of this version.

I wrote this library several years ago, but I no longer do any Flash work and have no use for this library myself. I don't even have a Flash compiler on my system to test pull requests.

As Github doesn't provide a mechanism to retire projects, this will live here for posterity.


node-amf

AMF module for NodeJS by Tim Whitlock

About

A pure JavaScript implementation of AMF designed for NodeJS. Can be used to create an AMF web services gateway over HTTP allowing a Flash Player client to communicate with a remote server.

Run "node test.js" to perform a simple serialize & deserialize test. Check that the output matches the variables show in the script.

To test a simple AMF gateway: configure and run the HTTP server in examples/http-server, then configure and run the Flash client in example/http-client.

Also in this project is some experimental work implementing RTMP. This should probably be split into its own project.

Status

  • The AMF library is largely complete and working, but not thoroughly tested.
  • The RTMP work is experimental and not ready for use.

Known issues

NodeJS has a habit of changing and depreciating function names. If you get missing function errors, then you need to upgrade NodeJS. See http://github.com/timwhitlock/node-amf/commit/62a85b8531307c86ff27daa21e48012a7558552a

AMF0 is only partially supported, due to it being depreciated. AMF3 should be used by all clients.
