The future of trabiCustomizer

In 2017, due to the Adobe announcment, I wrote a post, The future of Flash, which was actually a lot about the future of the trabiCustomizer.

Plans I had at that time didn't change but these are still only plans. Nothing really happen since that time to deliver new Flash-free trabiCustomizer

Now, when Adobe pushes the notification in Flash updater about its End-of-Life and recommends to uninstall/remove it from user's device it ia a good time to rethink trabiCustomizer future.

From my side it is obvious that if nothing happened so far, I will not be able to make major work on it until end of 2020. So what is the plan? I will keep website running, try to prepare a release of the current version of the trabiCustomizer as Windows executable application, and try to really make happen the plan I had 3 years ago to make trabiCuustomizer an open source project that anyone can contribute to.

The future of Flash

On 25.07.2017 Adobe announced the future of the Flash, the engine that trabiCustomizer is based on (Adobe announcment: Flash & The Future of Interactive Content). To make long story short, due to the development of other great standards, Adobe decided to stop with the Flash development in the end of 2020.

For trabiCustomizer that means major work needs to be done to adapt it to new standards like HTML5, SVG, and JavaScript. Although it is possible, substantial amount of work needs to be done.

Already on 26.04.2020 I decided to start a GitHub repository for the trabiCustomizer project that would aim for transferring as much as possible from the old flash standard to new ones. This will initiate making the trabiCusrtomizer an open source project allowing everyone interested to contribute and keep it going. By doing this, I hope that new great app will be released and continue to develop with cutting edge new web standards and features. The initial the transfer still needs a lot of my work. However, as the entire trabiCustomizer project became a side project for me in last years and was rather existing in unchanged form than developing, I can't promise bright future. It is still 3 years to go but for a side project it is not actually so long.
