Flex with Plone

So, I have been looking around for ways to get Flex integration with Plone, because, imaginations and creativity that you can put with such a nice CMS on the backend and cool Flex in the front end is just endless.

My research so far uptodate includes, comments from techies that mention, using Repoze as a gateway interface between Plone and Flex using pyAMF.

Flex Components

I thought, I have been checking out some pretty cool demo's out there on the web regarding Flex that are so cool, that you end up saying "WOWWWWWWW, Amazing". For my dear South African friends, I think its pretty much "Lekkaa man" :)

So while I am still briefing and polishing my afrikans, please have a look at the demo's of some flex components on the following sites.

If you find more cool components, please feel free to add it to the list or contact me :)
