Custom GeocodeProcessor with Swiz

One of the interesting features of Swiz 1.0 (still pre-release) is the ability to create custom metadata processors. To get more familiar with the idea, check this docs page. Note that some items from the docs has changed, such as you no longer extend MetadataProcessor, but extend BaseMetadataProcessor. There is a Yahoo Finance Processor, a…


AS3-Signals in Swiz, keepin’ it simple

So, previously I had talked about using Swiz and AS3-Signals (Swignalz!). My example was crude and honestly, it was not good. Ben Clinkinbeard did a much better job of showing how easy it was to drop some AS3-Signals around with Swiz. This past week, I have been tinkering around with a project that will be…
