A few days ago we announced a new version implemented in Flash of the ccLabs experimental Freedoms License Generator and issued a challenge to DHTML developers to equal the performance and visual improvements of the Flash version, using DHTML.
That didn’t take long. Sylvain Zimmer of Jamendo (see our most recent post about Jamendo’s CC music portal) whipped up a DHTML version of the puzzle pieces interface used in the Freedoms License Generator that is just as slick and fast as our Flash version.
The implementation is not complete — it doesn’t provide copy & paste license HTML — but it proves the point that Flash is unnecessary for this application. The next iteration of the ccLabs project will integrate Sylvain’s code with HTML and metadata generation.
