Ming is an open-source (LGPL) library which allows you to create SWF ("Flash") format movies. Ming supports almost all of Flash 4's features, including: shapes, gradients, bitmaps (pngs and jpegs), morphs ("shape tweens"), text, buttons, actions, sprites ("movie clips"), streaming mp3, and color transforms--the only thing that's missing is sound events. Ming contains wrappers for PHP, Zope/Python, Perl, Ruby, and c++. Ming is not an acronym. Also, Ming contains a Flash 5 actionscript compiler and support for clip event actions.
Live Counter! is a combination of PHP code and a Flash movie. It shows the counter state LIVE, without reloading the whole page. This means, that every site access increases the loaded counter. The counter receives about 1 byte/s, it is optimized to use a very small bandwith. The Flash movie has some built-in workarounds, so it works with IExplorer and Netscape.
phpChart is a PHP4 class package derived and hacked from advGraph to generate charts in Flash4 SWF format. It allows you to generate scatter, line, column charts in FLASH format. The Ming PHP extension to SWF is used in this class package.
