Hello! I have lately read the release that many vendors refuse to produce flash software and replace it to HTML5. Since now, no more software packages with Flash client will be available, as long as their updates.

 

It is bound to the fact that flash solutions have rather limited functions and possibilities in comparison with HTML5. 

 

As they say, HTML5 is adapted for both desktop and mobile devices, has more convenient interface and more functions. This technology is considered to be more flexible, easy-to-used and innovative than flash. In addition, Flash consumes more resources and proved to be less secure. 

 

But flash software has been in a high demand a very long time. I believe that it is difficult to get rid of such powerful and long-lived technology immediately.

 

What do you think about it? Is it really true that soon HTML5 displace flash?

Was dubious if I should approve this post or not, but as long as everyone can keep it civil I'll let it be.

At the end of the day though, it all comes down to the browser vendors. As soon as Flash is either removed from the browsers, or hidden behind a flag / pop-up warning (as Chrome will do by year end), then really that's all that matters. As soon as that happens, it's irrelevant who still uses it, who supports it, or how 'long lived' it was. It's also irrelevant if html5 can compete with it or not, because if it's not there in the browser (or hidden), then it's game over really. And make no mistake about it, this is happening, and will continue to do so.

IIRC even the most popular ad sites are converting over to canvas elements instead of flash, which will also diminish the need.

I've been googling some Flash vs HTML 5 / WebGL benchmarks but cannot find any modern ones. I'm pretty sure WebGL blows flash out of the water? Not entirely sure, but that could be another reason :P

there won't be Flash in the browser anymore, but all other targets still remain thanks to AIR

My concern about AIR would be the likelihood that Adobe will eventually abandon both Flash and AIR after Flash support disappears from the browsers.

Adobe seems to be increasing AIR support. But even if AIR would be dropped, time enough to make your decision then. Easy enough to port AS3 to Haxe, which will give you HTML5 and Native.

Flash/AIR it doesn't matter. What matters is AS3. Nothing exciting happens in AS3, it is doomed and will die eventually. Question is not "if", but "when"?

You are better of moving to different platform.

For example lack of simple things like generics, template strings in AS3, makes it look primitive.

 

Edit:

Does anyone remember Lingo script (Shockwave player)? AS3 has similar future.

If you're looking at web browser based games then you are developing in HTML5. However, Flash (now Animate) claims to let you author HTML5 games through some voodoo with CreateJS. They say it maps 1:1 your AS3 source code with HTML5 Canvas. I can't substantiate that, though.

If you are looking for native app or desktop development then just go to Unity. By a wide margin it's the leading game development platform for indies.

Html5 vs Flash, from being a sanctuary of multimedia for gaming to fading into the background as an alternative to HTML5, what happened that inverted the world for Flash? Why is Adobe Flash player retiring from the place it completely ruled? is Html better than Flash? Check out this link relating to the ‘game changing’ versions of HTML5 games and Flash Games.

One of the most controversial topics in software engineering by  https://mlsdev.com/blog/how-to-create-an-app-like-clubhouse is the need for reliability and maintainability. Software engineering strives to build reliable and maintainable software systems because these systems help reduce the risk of software defects. Reliability refers to the ability of a software system to operate properly and to return results, while maintainability concerns itself with the ways in which changes can be made that will maintain the software's compatibility with the operating system and other software. Common examples of software maintenance are bug fixes and updates. A high-level vocabulary for describing software maintenance is often used, such as CMMI (Computer Manufacturer Integration), SOAP (Software Architecture), MDA (Modular Design Application), or MRP (Mastering Model).
