Flash is gone! We dedicate this book

I created so much with Flash and would like to honor its demise (December 2020) with a remake of the classic Flash Book but made with ZIM. Here is an example:

https://zimjs.com/cat/book.html

The example book, while being primarily pictures, can be completely interactive inside the pages as well. You can see some buttons in there but there could be animations, draggable objects, sliders, dials, particle emitters, etc.

One of the buttons leads to a second book:

https://zimjs.com/darklo - on the famous VR Potter.

Check out the ZIM code - perhaps this will be what gets you started coding in ZIM! https://zimjs.com/five/book.html We hope so.

// The pages in the book can be fully interactive
// but here is an example of just loading images into the book
// note - import ZIM and CreateJS in a script file above
// copy the template from https://zimjs.com/code.html

var path = "covers/"; // the folder with the images
var assets = ["build.jpg", "castle.jpg", "ganymede.jpg", "lastyear.jpg", "martian.jpg"];
const frame = new Frame("fit", 1024, 768, darker, darker, assets, path);
frame.on("ready", () => {
    const stage = frame.stage;

    // get one picture to find the size of the book
    const pic = asset("build.jpg");
    new Book(pic.width*2, pic.height, assets).center();

    stage.update();
}); // end of ready
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
