I have finally put pen to paper on my germinating ideas surrounding a Drupal module for publishing Drupal content and applications via Adobe AIR.
For example, the first step of the wizard might be "Do your users have to login to use this app?" Answer "yes" and the Drupal login/logout procedures are automatically included in their AJAX form, AIR-ready. You might then ask them which page should be presented on login (including Views). Then what content types users are permitted to create via the app. You get the idea.
It's very early days, but my research is very promising and I think the potential of this idea is huge. I have started a Drupal project page, and christened the project Airborne - and I'm quite pleased with that name, even if I do say so myself. You can read all about it here:
And please do get involved if you can! The more, the merrier!
