Hi! I spent around one week converting flexmojos project to gradleFx. And finally it seems that I succeeded. Build file turned to be twice smaller then mavens pom and generally I am really happy about result. Thank you! Really great. There are couple of things that are missing, I want to list:
1) Filtering of resources. descriptor.xml etc...That was my main struggle.
2) Somehow I got all swf files from Flex SDK in my build deirectory
3) In descriptor.xml initialWindow was specified without path, but to make it work I had to add "build/" in front.
4) It will be really cool, if it will be standard way to specify themes.

Anyway with couple of workarounds I got following build script. If you can check and say, am Idoing something working - it will be great :)

apply plugin: "gradlefx"


ext {
    //Backend
    set('app.protocol', 'http')
    set('appserver.hostname', 'stage')
    set('appserver.port', '8081')

    // Build properties
    set('config.debug', 'true')
    set('clients.versionLabel', '1')
    set('clients.versionNumber', '1')
    set('clients.revisionName', '1')
    set('clients.buildNumber', '1')
    set('installation.suffix', '')
    set('nightly.buildId', '3333')
    set('build.mode.release', 'false')

    set('client.width', '1366')
    set('client.height', '768')
}

    Hi! Great to hear your experiences!

    1) Filtering of resources. descriptor.xml etc...That was my main struggle.
    

    That's indeed a good point and something we can certainly add sometime in the future. I'll create a feature request for this on our issue tracker.

    2) Somehow I got all swf files from Flex SDK in my build directory
    

    These are the failover rsl libraries.

    3) In descriptor.xml initialWindow was specified without path, but to make it work I had to add "build/" in front.
    

    I'll have to check this.

    4) It will be really cool, if it will be standard way to specify themes.
    

    There is. You can specify themes as dependencies, like this (or as a file-based dependency):

    theme group: 'my.organization', name: 'fancy-theme', version: '1.0', ext: 'swc'
    

    Your script looks ok to me, so good job :)

    Here's the feature request I created for the resource filtering: https://github.com/GradleFx/GradleFx/issues/99
